Trigeminal Neuralgia, Fibromylgia, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, muscle pain are also known as very very painful disorders with lack of something that will help and not much chance of a cure either! Sound familiar?
Comparing one pain to another is useless waste of energy and very judgemental! Like we have to prove to someone just how bad WE got it.
Someone who lost a child by murder and the killer was never found must leave a HUGH hole in that persons life for the rest of their lives. I have no idea how that must feel, something I never want to deal with. All the reminders for the rest of my life would be so heartbreaking!
This our pain versus another human fellow gets us in the postion of being very judgemental, and a waste of energy...and I don't think the idea DJ had when he started this board.
So lets get back to where we help one another and maybe come up with an answer to OUR torture! Most of the time the board does that.
