it really makes the concept of pain out to be this cartoon representation of discomfort. where, if you can coherently articulate what you are feeling, it doesn’t warrant serious concern. having experienced this lack of concern by many doctors, i cannot stress how dangerous it is.
they would like to have use believe it would be merely an act of unfeeling, which is true for less severe pains. once it takes over your being, it would be like trying to will yourself out of existance. it stops being a reasonable or even feasible course of action.
