> I tell you... Physical pain is nothing. Well, no, that isn't quite true. It sucks. Pretty bad. But mental pain... Brings its own additional aspect of suffering. I don't feel sorry for myself about my feet (much). But I feel pretty f*ck*ng sorry for myself for the mental hell on earth much of my life has felt like being.

I suppressed my emotions for so long with drugs and alcohol and work and obsessive exercising. I didn't believe in mental suffering and thought of people with mental illness as whiners who should get a grip and stop complaining. When I got depressed in my late 40s, I realized that emotional pain can trump the worst physical pain. It's almost unendurable.
