Question Something weird I’ve been thinking about is how there is something oddly comforting about the pain. Maybe comforting isn’t the right word. It’s familiar. As I move through this process, I wonder what it will feel like to not feel the familiar pangs. I’m not sure I know! I don’t know what it feels like to wake up and not immediately think “how do I feel today?” “how much does it hurt today?” Is that something other people think? How do I move past that?
