I donít really have any good experienced input on how to correctly
process physical pain, because Iím such a spoilt complaining child
when I have it.
But I can sure empathize from the stand point of your loved ones
feeling so helpless to be doing anything about easing your pain. My
best experience with that is that others have told me that just being
willing to set and be there, hold their hand or soothing a fevered
brow with a cool cloth, or holding them in your arms, and even being a
pleasant distraction when ever that might be possible and appropriate.
The main element in all these is to simply be ďwithĒ them. Iím very
thankful that you have those willing awake people around you.
My highest thoughts and Ďhopesí are with you on being (((much)))
