Pain

the dictionary definition of pain is: 

  • : the physical feeling caused by disease, injury, or something that hurts the body
  • : mental or emotional suffering : sadness caused by some emotional or mental problem
  • : someone or something that causes trouble or makes you feel annoyed or angry

Pain is not only felt physically, it can be felt emotionally......that hurts too.  Worry is a form of pain...will I be OK? What is going to happen? Do you care about me? Who will care for me? What is happening to me? Am I getting worse? Why can't I remember -fill in the blank???
I am not going to talk about physical pain because i don't suffer from it. 
But, sometimes aren't there days when you just want to take 15 minutes to cry for yourself?
I have been feeling more like that lately.The cooler weather? My emotions? Cancer?
The sinus infection I have?
If you're  a friend of mine you probably haven't heard me speak of it.......and you probably will not: b/c I don't want to burden anyone, I don't want anyone to feel sorry for me, and I do not have a reason. I just want to vent and see if anyone else feels this way.

  3. I here you...I fell the other day on what affectionately call my breast cancer boob while running. As soon as I took off my sports bra when I got home it started throbbing with this horrible pain! And my first thought was "OMG! I can't do this again! " I immediately thought did I break something loose? Did I make the cancer come back?!?
    You are not alone.the fear, the hurt, it's all part of the process. Hugs. I think of you often.

  5. When you came to visit, you certainly could have talked to me about how you felt. You have a right to let it out. And you deserve sympathy. No one should have to go through what you are going through. No matter how close we are/aren't, I am your sister and I am here for you, like I am here for all my friends.

  7. It is healing to share your pain, your worry. It is natural. 1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you.
    Love,

  9. Sending a HUG.
    I know that I have been down in the dumps since we got back from our family outing. Returning to LIFE ... not always easy.

  10. Linda, I think in autumn we are more emotional...boy I am . When I am sick I stress more...because of the same things you ask...who cares or will help me . Is there helps for me. Then as you know stress is the worse thing that we do to ourselves. We have to pray and keep our faith strong. I some times have to cry from the feeling of loneliness....so I just go ahead and cry, then I pray for strength. Hugs to you my dear friend. You are in my thoughts and prayers...because you are in my heart.Bless you, xoxo, love you, Susie

  11. I think emotional pain is simply part of the human experience. We'd never experience true joy if we didn't know about pain. The trick is to embrace it, cry, scream, stomp around, but don't stay there too long.

  14. Oh my goodness! My mama used to say, "Sometimes you need to go somewhere and have yourself a good cry." And I do. Kinda felt like that. As we get older I think we all realize our own mortality and it hits us like a brick. I do now that I am in the next chapter of life, I guess you can call it. Sometimes my kids want to plan my funeral. Seriously. I told them I'm not gone yet!! Love you girl and remember Linda, you are the chocolate girl. Can't forget rhat!
