The question - What's The Worst Pain You've Ever Felt? - came up on the beach the other day.
Everyone loves hearing (and telling) stories of pain.. stories about stubbed toes and broken bones...
But I can't really say that I've ever been in any significant physical pain.
Whether this means I'm blessed, or haven't really lived life, or have a high pain threshold... I don't know... but I have never been in such pain that I'd label it THE WORST I've had.
Yes, my tattoo was painful for the first half hour of the needle piercing the skin on my shoulder blade... but it was bearable.. not like I was screaming and crying or anything... and after the first half hour, the area started to go numb anyway.
My impacted widsom tooth caused me a fever, and swollen jaw while I was in Krabi. But I took a couple of dodgy looking THAI (!!) painkillers and still managed to spend the rest of the holiday canoeing and island hopping even though my tooth kept throbbing.
Those experiences were not so much painful.. but more of a discomfort. I've never had kind of pain that literally makes you go crazy if it doesn't stop, or the kind of pain that brings you to tears. I should be happy that I've never broke my nose, or was a man and got kicked in the balls by Andre The Giant... right? But somehow I feel impoverished.
What about you? What's the worst physical pain you've ever felt?
My entire face's so swollen now - yikes.
And yep, my tattoo which went on for 3hours was still bearable. I can't imagine how Amanda did hers though!
agree tht one decent size tattoo is bearable.
Amanda is mad, tht's why. lol
My worst physical pain was when I sliced my palm accidentally with a pen knife.
It kept bleeding and I could not open my palm properly for weeks! Was so scared that the wound split open again.
But nature has it such that once you behold that delivered crying helpless babe in your arms, you'll just think it's all worth it. :)
@DancingDory yes... I think many mothers wld agree tht childbirth ranks within the top few of most painful experiences.
@anon10.12 good for you. did ur dream finally come true?
@Swiedebie How do u break a toe??did u break the exact same toe? if u break it once does tht mean its weaker/more prone to breaking again?
