I'm in pain. Physical pain. It is unbearable. I found myself waking up from my sleep every hour because of it. I'm in pain while typing this. While driving. While walking. While in class. I don't show it to others, but sometimes it exceeds what I can hold back. This results in grim faces, taut jaws and a serious expression.
At home I try to do other actions to distract me from the pain. I tap my trusty cane, but it could not withstand the force of the tapping that its handle is coming off. I couldn't bite myself; the infection from oral bacteria is really, really nasty. What I really need right now is a chemically induced coma.
