I have always wondered how people handle “pain”….

Some how, I haven’t learnt the art of handling it too well… Sadly, all
kinds of pain, mild or strong, make me cranky… And that,
unfortunately, ends up having its effect on people who love me and hate
seeing me in that state!

I wonder if there are any better ways of handling pain. Humour doesn’t
help in my case… A bad attempt at humour just drives me up the wall…
Taking my mind off works some times, but for a much shorter duration!
And yeah, I kind of despise meds, so that’s ruled out anyways!

Any better ideas? How do you guys handle it?
