This is not going to be a long reply, it is getting late.
There is a distinct difference between pain and hurt.
You need to discover this.
I had an oral operation on my mouth which lasts two hours, it started at 9am lasts till almost 11am.
As the operation goes on, the meds wear off so I feel pain, I ask the doc to give me more meds to ease it so he does.
I get to a point which really hurts, and he says I cannot give any more meds in case of cardiac arrest but he gave me informative advice that I should have this operation under general anastaesia.
I told him to just get it over with and get it over with.
Now the difference between pain and hurt.
The pain was worth going through the emotional pain that caused all of this hurt in the first place.
Hurt is emotional, pain is pain, there is a difference.
I went through the pain of a doc touching raw nerves in surgery just to get rid of hurt in my life, mainly my mouth.
The surgery could have paralyzed half of my face, but I had faith in the surgeon, so the pain was worth being able to smile or feel hurt.
He lifted a sac that was there when I was punched in the face by a kid who broke the nerve in my tooth at the root.
I just thought, hey it cant be any different from any other pain, and the pain of lifting a polyp off my radial nerve was like hell, but it was worth it.
The downside is that my body masks pain, so if it is in trouble it would be hard to distinguish between pain and real pain
I felt so cool after going through that pain,
