Message: Informed through pain is about literal physical pain that can't be gotten away from. Unrelenting. I have a condition that came about due to medical error and now I deal with chronic pain every day...and it reminds me much more than I'd like that it is in charge. I try to approach it with radical acceptance...which means that I have to practice accepting it, but I don't have to like what's happening to me...I need to take the negative energy and convert it into something positive....right now, that is venting and writing a poem. It used to be long walks, dancing, tennis, badminton, other raquet sports and endless swimming. Not anymore.
