On Wednesday I was in pain all day. Not physical pain, but mental pain.
It’s so hard to describe, we don’t have the vocabulary for it in Enlgish. It is something like a combination of despair, loneliness, anxiety and depression.
I spent the whole day trying to distract myself from it by playing computer games, reading and watching TV. All of which have to finish (my concentration isn’t as good as it could be either) when the pain would return just as bad as before.
Unlike physical pain, I don’t have pain-killers to get rid of it. It was a bad day.
Also unlike physical pain, I suspect there are many people out there who simply can’t imagine what it is like. Well, it’s horrible.
