My hand is healing and I'm better, but not before going through a full range of hard emotions.
This is not a funny one, but I want to share what I'm learning about stages of pain, both physical and emotional. Doctors used to tell me that I have a "high" pain threshold, but it serves me less these days.
Especially in times of stress, I'm learning that it's important to name the pain you feel, when you feel it. Seems like it's critical to the healing process.
