Im a wimp...
    #1740527 - 07/23/03 08:25 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Ive been suffering from toothache the last few days (ahhh!) it keeps coming and going. Transcend the pain right? Well I cant! I did manage to meditate it away the other night so I could get some sleep as I didnt have any painkillers in the house (Dont worry Swami, Im well aware it may have just been coincidence that the pain faded after 15mins of meditating  :grin:) But when its there it demands all of my attention, its hard to concentrate on much else. I was just reading mr mushrooms fine post regarding logic and was going to try and formulate a reply but the old throbbing kicked back in and I just couldnt be bothered.

I was wondering What other sensations would demand ones attention like this? Hunger, fear, too cold, too hot? Luckily Im going to the dentist in a couple of hours (You always know its bad when you feel glad to be going to the dentist!) and once the pain has gone I can go back to remembering pain is an illusion  :lol:

How lucky we are!

PEACE

stop eating candy and soda for christssake. after my second time getting cavities I made the mental connections necessary to stop behaviors that led to PAIN PAIN PAIN OH GOD THE SEARING PAIN!

it's called advert (I think...) conditioning. maybe it was't advert... what's the word??

The ultimate meaning of our being can only be fulfilled in the paradoxical leap beyond the tragic-demonic frustration. It is a leap from our side, but it is the self-surrendering presence of the Ground of Being from the other side.

I have an extremely low tolerance for dental pain myself. Other types of pain I can handle... I've been burned, cut, beaten and bruised, and I can deal with that pain... but when I have cavities drilled, HO-LEE-SHIT, I lose control, and no amount of meditation/preparation seems to do it for me.

But it's not even like pain... it's more like an intense, very uncomfortable form of tickling. It makes me shiver, sweat, squirm and scream... so hey, you're not the only wimp!

*WARNING*

This thread is awfully close to infringement on my "Am I a Pussy?" thread.

I think I should change it to "I'm an Idiot" anyway. I went to the dentist and got him to checkout my lower teeth and he couldnt find anything wrong and sent me on my way, now I reckon the pain is coming from the upper set goddamit. He's given me antibiotics but what good are they with the weekend coming and much beer to be drunk? Life sure is cruel sometimes!
