Re: How much pain...

Sometimes it is about asking a different question. Perhaps it isn't helpful to wonder how much pain one can endure, but instead wonder how many things need your attention or bring you comfort. If you get comfort as you give it, the mores the better.

And if you find yourself projecting into the future, perhaps you can offer yourself a deal. If, in one month (or 2 or a week, or whatever you can tolerate thinking about) you haven't found some respite from these feelings, and you don't feel comforted, at least a little, then you can begin to think about what it would mean to not be here. But if you have found a few moments of peace here and there - then give yourself another month (or week or whatever) and concentrate on expanding those moments into hours and then the hours into days. This works for me sometimes - like taking away the pressure of the decision. And who needs more pressure when you are in pain?

I hope you feel better soon.
