A sleepless night. A trapped nerve in my shoulder.
It’s hard to concentrate and hard not to. I can’t think and I can’t sleep. The pain is my focus.
Physical pain can do that. But so can emotional pain.
Feelings can dominate your very being. Consume you. Just as much as physical hurt.
I have painkillers now for my shoulder. They should soon help the physical pain. Chemicals in tablet form that I acquired from the local pharmacy. Even though I’m in a fairly remote location, I can get help with physical pain.
Emotional pain is harder to treat.
Yet just as debilitating.
Maybe more so.
Harder to get help.
Harder to cure.
