You have helped me understand pain more.
I remember dislocating my knee cap just before leaving on a 3 month trip around South America. Not the ideal timing. I believe I have a high pain threshold but having a healing leg on a plane did incur pain.
My mind was kept distracted by thinking of all the amazing places my senses were about to experience.
I loved my trip, and even managed to head off the sherpas requests to carry me along the Inca trail..no sir, I would go through the pain. I refused to be carried.
My point of these babbles.. is basically to say I resonated with your explanation of pain here because of that experience.
Thank you for being you and giving me space to connect a few dots in my life.
