The pain gets harder and harder to ignore. Sometimes I think that if I keep moving it won’t hit me. But this pain is slowing me down, stopping me in my tracks. I’m closing my eyes and begging for it leave me. I just want to read this book. Nope, can’t do that. I try something lazy like watching TV. Nope, can’t do that either. I sit in bed and stare at the walls around me. Trapped in my room by the pain that won’t leave me. I start to cry and I feel so alone. My head throbs and clicks with my tears. I know better than to get emotional because crying only makes the head pain worse, but sometimes I just can’t help it. I wipe away my tears, close my eyes and take a deep breath. I just have to hold on. This too shall pass.
