Pain is . . .
So, I came down with a cold. Had a massive headache Tuesday morning, thought it was a baby migraine, but by evening I was sneezing and snuffling, and by bedtime I was chugging the Nyquil.
Just as I was falling asleep, I felt a surge of pressure pain in my forehead and, in my typical fashion, I tried to mentally block and run away from the pain. Then a thought came to me, a soft very-back of the mind thought, which said, "Pain is just Nature's way of saying, 'Hey, you're not dead yet!'"
Funny thing is, as soon as I thought that, the pain lessened it's grip on me. And that was a good thing.
