That just about sums it all up doesn't it! Pain robs us of so many things! Hopes and dreams, things that we wanted to do or accomplish in our lives, and couldn't and deep down we know that we never will be able to! And that in a very big, and real way, is the worst Pain of all!!! , and there is no pill or medication that will take that "hurt" away! I have met most of my pains, I think? and there are some I am not ready to meet yet!
