For many years, almost the past two decades in fact, pain has been a constant part of who I am, and I do mean constant. I would go to sleep in pain, wake up in pain, and with me all my waking hours, there was pain. Even when this started, I strongly desired not to go through life on constant medication, so I just sucked it up and dealt with it. My shoulders hurt? Very well then, my shoulders hurt. It's what shoulders do.
As a result of this, I suspect my pain threshold to be rather higher than most people's; I've become so used to working through pain that I no longer really notice it.
This morning, when I woke up, nothing hurt.
Think about that. For the first time in almost twenty years, nothing hurt.
Of course, once I got up and started moving, all the little aches returned, but for a while, I got to experience life without pain.
I still don't think it's worth medication, but that's just my opinion.
