I've taken a baseball to the area near the groin and broken my cheekbone, slammed my fingers into car doors. While those were all painful, the pain was temporary. By far the worst pain I've ever been it was coming out of anesthesia after ACL surgery. They were a little late getting me on the morphine drip and so it was just about the most pain I can imagine. The additional pain associated with the surgery lingered for 6 months. When I had my appendix out last year, they told me it was about to burst and said I must have a high tolerance for pain because I wasn't complaining about it. After the ACL surgery, everything else just seems less painful.
Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
