Pain and Fear

Substantial physical pain frequently takes over my body due to my persisting medical condition. The symptoms are less severe than they once were. I’m cautiously hopeful (again) that upcoming treatment will be “my answer”. A cure will be great. Significant improvement will be sufficient.

I’ve been trying recently to fully experience my feelings. I need to try to fully experience both emotional and physical pain, when it’s doesn’t overwhelm me. Growing up male, I learned to avoid, and numb my feelings. I am slowly unlearning attempting to “conquer” my difficulties.
