I am in excruciating pain right now. My stomach hurts so much that I’m literally having a hard time doing much else other than write.
I tried getting work done and succeeded for a moment but, after a while, my focus was completely sapped and I was forced to give all of my attention to what my stomach was telling me, that it was in pain.
I have a very high tolerance for pain. It’s a natural thing about me that I’ve also worked to develop over time. It’s honestly one of those things that I pride myself on.
With that being said, internal pain like stomach aches are things that I can’t handle. I can’t control my stomach (I could watch what I eat better but hey, I screwed up).
I can’t alleviate the pain unless I take medicine(which is why I bought some).
What I’ve realized while I’ve been working on dealing with this pain is how much stronger one’s pain threshold can get if we just deal with it.
If we tackle the issue headfirst and work on push through it, we’ll be able to strengthen our abilities to handle other things. I’m thinking about this while doing something that I would have never thought that I’d be able to do, work while dealing with a stomach ache.
I had to consciously do this but, focusing and forcing the words to come onto this computer monitor has shown me how much I’ve grown. It shows me the potential that we all have as individuals; as long as we dive headfirst into whatever it is that we haven’t been able to conquer previously.
I’m going to sign off now because I feel myself slipping into unconsciousness(not literally. It’s happened before though).
See you guys at the next post,
