I'm all choked up, having read your post, which touched my heart, followed by three wonderful and thoughful posts from our group. It occurs to me that this kind of pain can do something else for us too, if we let it. It can teach us how bad pain can be, so that we want to ease the suffering of others. It can help us build within ourselves a level of compassion for the pain of others that is perhaps a bit fuller. That, I think, is a good use to which we can put this awful pain, and I clearly see evidence that others are putting it to that use in the follow-ups to your posts. You will have a good life, Billy S. Hope you will share parts of your journey with us here at ch.com.
