This is an answer to "Question to ponder"... "Recognizing emotions being connected to pain?" For me, not in a direct way. When I feel pain, I don't feel stressed/sad about something at the same time. I'm telling the pain "I know you're there because of repressed emotion," that's the only connection. "How do the emotions make you feel?" The emotions during pain? I don't have any. While freewriting, however, I feel everything! Tears have been flowing! I think that's good. But did I misunderstand part of that question?
