Follow up

Once again, I apologize for the silence. I'm dealing with an intense amount of pain that just doesn't seem to lessen...it just changes forms.

Speaking of which, are there novels that deal with intense physical pain more than just in passing for a character? Not that I want to read it, now or ever. Mental/emotional/psychological problems get dealt with in novels so much easier than physical ailments. There's only so many ways you can say "It friggin' hurt a lot" for characters.

I don't remember any novels that deal with physical pain except as a short term phenomena, as a result of an injury. There's always Emily Dickinson's evocative poem on pain, but nothing that I can think of.

I hope it passes soon.

Thanks everyone. I've got more follow-up procedures scheduled, and I'm hoping I turn the corner on this at some point.
