“You deal with pain in your own way.” anon 2008
Some get through with determination, others distract themselves. Some focus on the pain (willing it to get worse in some cases helps to reduce it) some people pray, some people take the drugs offered. Others shut down mentally, still others find that creativity can help to put their troubles outside themselves – for instance, writing or drawing can be a blessing. Often pain seems to come in different guises day-to-day and needs to be met differently.

Relief, yeah relief relief
very much so
a medication to ease
then you can carry on
marring the pain
a blanket over

when you get the pain
you drop right down

say you're standing on a stepladder
then you
take the medication
and you're back on the ladder
