I live with pain. Not “a” pain, but most days pains in every place I am aware of; some days I hurt in places I had no idea I had. Then today came.
Today, things were beyond belief. I had pain that completely shocked me. In fact, it frightened me. I felt like I had swallowed Satan himself after he’d been kicked in the balls by a priest and he was trying to claw his way out of my torso.
For eight solid hours I begged the powers of the universe to strike me dead. I frantically crawled through the house looking for something I would have the stones to use to turn the lights out.
Things have subsided slightly. Just slightly. So now I have a new threshold to face whenever it rears its ugly head.
I can’t wait for tomorrow. I wouldn’t miss it for anything.
– except for maybe a speeding bus to fall in front of.
