What is PAIN?

Just a little fantasy today.
I often tell how I lose myself in a Fantasy world. I need that at the moment...
Nobody here ever tells me how they cope with pain.....
How do you cope when it even invades your sleep
and gives you psychadelic dreams?
Pain is such a personal thing....doctors often ask you..on a scale of 1 to 10, what number is your pain?
Do you give it a number, or a colour or what?
Do you love it or hate it? Do you meditate?
I've tried everything I know.... but you can't spend all day in meditation or a dream world.
Everyday Life has to go on.
Sometimes I am in such a depressive state I wonder if I can go on...
Is it really worth dragging yourself around, when every little thing is such an effort, something as trivial as cleaning your teeth for instance...
More times than I like to think, I doubt my Faith...
Then I think of my loved ones and somehow or other I drag myself up again.
I am thankful for the wonders of nature, the roses in my garden, the birds feeding on the bird table and the bees working away in my flowers, the butterflies drifting by my window....
all little pieces of magic in my life and I am glad to be alive.
Please, please, leave me a little message to tell me how you cope!
With my love and blessings,
June xxxxx

Thank you for visiting my blog this morning.

I understand (if only a little) how pain invades your psyche and takes over and I hope that your days will improve, little by little

You have created so beautiful fantasy collage, I really love it. I think you can for a moment forget your pains when doing your wonderful art, dear June.
I suffered pains in my back 12 years ago and it operated. I found a great therapy from jooga. It took 2 years, but my back is now very well. I exercise jooga in a grupp ones a week and at home alone, too.
Thank you very much for your lovely comments on my blog, at laas this morning dear June.

June, dear, I wish I had an answer for you. I know that people handle pain in different ways. The medical treatment is elusive at best. I do hope you can find relief, literally and through doing what you love and being with those you love. i'll say a prayer for you.

Beautiful post, June. Your artwork is gorgeous. I hope you can find a solution to your pain and that in spite of it, you hang onto your faith. I hate it when I am asked to give a number to pain. I am not able to do that. I would know the difference between 2 and 8, but when it gets to the middle range, I am in confusion.

Dear June, to have pain every day is not fun, that I know all about, I have arthritis and living with pain every day, but being creative makes me think of something else, also to be with my grandchildren, although I get very tired, wonderful fantasy collage, love your work. Thanks for all your sweet comment on my blogs.
Hugs Anni

Hi, June. I was sad to see this posting ...wish I could reach across the Atlantic and give you a big hug. You are brave to share your pain with all of us. It takes real courage to do that. You bring so much joy and love to so many people--your family, your art friends who look forward to seeing your beautiful creations every day, and I'm sure many others you encounter in your daily life. You are loved and respected and admired. Glad today's posting is more hopeful. I wish you peace and hope and as much acceptance as you can manage in the face of your challenges.
Hugs and xxxxxx,

Dear one, first of all thank you so much for visiting my blog and your kind message. Your digital art is breathtaking. I cannot imagine being in pain on a regular basis but have had a few bad episodes. Sometimes taking my mind off it by creating art works but sometimes it doesn't. And when that happens I try to drown it out by playing my fave songs-loud :):)

Dear June if you could only know how many people love you...people that you have brought happiness and joy to with your wonderful spirit and your beautiful art. You are a very special lady and I count it as a blessing to have gotten to know you through our blogs...you inspire me and I would give you a big hug right now if I could.
I am dogged by depression and one thing I have found that helps with depression is gratitude and I can see in this post that you are looking for the good things in your life the things you are grateful for...oh yes and humor helps too I'm going to post a cartoon on "Draw a Fine Line "just for you June and keep you in my prayers. I Love your sweet spirit hang in there - Deann

I love your fantasy world! Now that I am having so much pain in my hands, I can begin to understand what you must go through. Wishing you many butterflies and fairy light to lighten your load!

Jester said...

I love your fantasy piece, June. In reality, I probably don't cope that well with pain. Give me pain killers every time! Hope you have more good days than bad. Jx

Dear June, I wish I had some magical formula to share with you. I don't. But I know what pain means. I also know that you are greater than your pain. It doesn't dominates you. You are an inspiration for all of us. Don't give up.
