It is possible to do something constructive with your pain. Suffer it for someone else. "Give it up" for someone else. Pick someone you know that is in need and with that person and their need in mind... dedicate your suffering to them...for them and their need. It will be of great help to them.
You don't have to keep them in mind thoughout the attack. Just...at some point ... say to Him "I'll suffer this for (whoever)"
It will not reduce your pain...it will not help you feel better. Expect no rewards. This is sacrifice in it's purest form. Prayer in it's purest form. He invented this on Good Friday.
All that I have and all that I offer comes from a heart...both frightened and free.
Palm Sunday's walk in the sunshine and shadows.
