Palliativity 220: illusion

Posted on December 12, 2013

Even though I'm continuing to feel better than ever before, some habits are inescapable. For example, gauging my current chronic physical pain from 1-10 is as involuntary as breathing. This actually can be quite difficult since pain signals are extremely relative and yet highly polarized. How would you compare a paper-cut to a rolled ankle or a sinus headache to a kick to the shin? Imagine stifling that primal scream while actively participating in the narrative that is your life. Remaining objective and civilized comes down to observing your actions and your physical/emotional state of unrest at any given moment.

The body evolved to have a natural response to pain. With chronic pain, what you do with that impulse defines you.
