It’s a bad pain week. In lieu of original content, let me co-opt a YouTube video. Today’s chronic pain lesson brought to you by Gir!
(Video from kittiekrazy via YouTube.)
Different colors, different speeds, different flavors — all the same sound.
I know it’s not the creator’s intent, but this is the best approximation I can give of what 159 seconds of chronic pain feels like.
There are 3600 seconds in an hour, 86,400 seconds in a day, 604,800 seconds in a week — 2,592,000 seconds in a year.
As a (perhaps illogically) optimistic estimate, I can expect to feel endo-related pain for something like 35 years.
That is the equivalent of watching this video 570,566 times.
