Pain is a blessing and this is why. I know pain because every day 24/7 for over seven years due to rsd/crps I am crippled with it. You might not notice I am an pain by just seeing me on the street but it does exist. My body constantly feels like it being electrocuted. My bones feel like they are broken. My skin stings and burns. My muscles go into muscle spasms. Oh yeah that relentless rsd head ache. Why do I say all of this is a blessing, because I am still alive.  No, No I am not a sadomasochist. I can feel things maybe not like you but I can still feel. After, being resuscitated and coming out of a hospital two years ago and being given a second chance at life. Now I know just how good I have it, I’m alive.
