  1. To test my threshold for pain. Maybe to prove to myself that I'm not weak, that I can stand the pain, that it's nothing really. When I cut myself the first time I was quite suprised by how little it hurt, though the blood loss made me weak for a couple days & I felt I could not even stand up. But that was a long time ago. Nowadays I deal with the fact that I can stand high amounts of pain all the time. I really don't need to hurt myself physically because I always end up in physical pain occuring on it's own. I even imagine what kinds of agony I could really end up in should I fall victim to confrontational violence that I am always avoiding, the place I live can hardly be called safe.

    I know the reasons differ for eveyone. If you have a reason, what is it? Do you even know?

    maybe the reason you barely feel physical pain is because your emotional/inner pain is too strong :S, just a guess.
     
  3. I'm just used to physical pain, that's all. I've been dealing with it my entire life(rough school days before high school). Still I can't stand the brain-aching I always get..... since I fractured my skull 8 or so weeks ago I've been living in a nightmare of pain unless I'm on opiate painkillers. :mad:

    ...sounds like you need to be checked by a doctor again.
     
  5. I have a follow-up scheduled with a nuerologist & then a headache specialist. The docs at the hospital I stayed in after it happened said there were a couple blood clots, but nothing requiring surgery. Phew! If I ever take aspirin my brain could start bleeding again(thins the blood you know)! :eek:hmy: Nurse told me aspirin isn't for headaches anyway.

    well I hope your brain doesnt start bleeding again! hope it feels better soon.
     

  7. Thanx! :biggrin: I really hope I don't end up needing painkillers for the rest of my days.... that's no good at all for me.
