    The worst pain I have ever felt was when I broke my neck in a car crash. There was no pain in my neck, but my right arm felt like it was shattered. I couldn't sit properly, had severe pain walking and leaning forward. The worst pain though was when I was being loaded into the ambulance, the pain of knowing my kids were going to be home alone, and the fear I was going to miss my oldest daughters graduation. I was lucky they were able to take a piece of my hip and with that a plate and four screws I was put back together. I made it to my daughters graduation, and was able to return to work three months later.

    Well, I hurt all the time, 24 hours a day and that's no fun.  But there is no cure nor help.  I take pain killers every day... it's a combination of arthritis, old age, and past injuries.

    The worst pain was once when I was stabbed in the lower chest.  The pain, ironically, was in my shoulder.  It was very painful and the doctors wouldn't give me painkillers because they needed to wait to see if they needed to operate on me.  They didn't have to but the only way to keep the pain down was to sit up in the hospital bed and just wait.  The pain subsided after a few hours and I was in hospital for a week.

    The pain in my shoulder was quite excruciating. You would have to have been there to know how bad it was.

    For me, without a doubt, the worst pain ever has been toothache.

    Why ? - because there is not a lot one can do when it happens, until you get in front of a Dentist and that can be pain in itself.

    Yep, toothache is absolute torture.

    The worst pain I ever felt was a couple months ago.  A family member was walking the dog, who was on one of those 25 foot extend-a-leash deals.  It was summer so I had shorts on.

    The dog ran past me and then made a right turn, dragging all 25 feet of that nylon cord tight against the back of my knee.  I felt this burning sharp pain so strong I couldn't believe it.  I started to scream as loud as I could and then my knees buckled under the pain, which then trapped the nylon cord between my skin and leg all the more making it even worse.

    I had a pretty nice brush burn there for several days and could not bear to bend my leg even the slightest bit.  It swelled up pretty nicely.  It didn't hurt much afterward as long as my leg was straight.

    But the pain for the second or two while that nylon cord was burning into the back of my leg was just unreal.  I couldn't believe how painful that was because it just doesn't seem like it would hurt that much.  I've smashed my face into the road and knocked teeth out in a bicycle accident as a teenager and that pain was nothing compared to this.

    the worst pain i have felt was at the birth of my second  child. I had a blood clot which caused a placental abruption. The physical pain was the worst I have ever felt intense yet unreal . I think that's the best way to describe it. It was the emotional pain whilst been rushed to theatre that outweighed this. Not for myself but asking for my unborn to be saved. This mental anguish was the last thing I remember before been given the general anasthetic and one of the first emotions when I awoke. This disappeared however the moment I was told I had a gorgeous daughter who although small was healthy and perfect in any other way. A pain diminished but not one to be repeated.

    The worst pain is what I am going through right now.  I have always loved someone and was loyal and enjoyed them but never let them in so far that you are left utterly vulnerable.  I have always been able to walk away and not have any heartbreak that was dibilitating.  I was always just a little guarded. Always a little wall of some kind up.  Until my second marriage and I almost lost him in a divorce when he was deployed because he didn't feel I loved him the way he loved me and that I was in love with my exhusband.  I let him in and to the point where I would be broken if he left me.  We ended up getting the divorce after a move that ew didn't expect and rumors and gossip and drama that wasn't true and while he was suffering from PTSD.  He's deployed again and this time he did let it go through and its final now. 

    I feel like I am dying a slow painful death inside and I have been without him since May when he walked out.  July when we signed the papers.  I thought I could shut him out and shut down like I did with everyone else but I can't.  I have this weight in my chest all day and I never seem to  sleep and get by with maybe ever two or three nights.  I am scared and lonely.  I have to get up every day and function because i have three kids living with me and my oldest coming home to live with me and two of them are on the autism spectrum.  I have no desire to be with another man again and though I try I just can't get it through my head he isn't mine anymore.  The thought of him with someone else makes me physically sick.  I never want to fall in love again. I don't plan on letting anyone in because I can't tell you that if I didn't have these kids and these kids needing me because i am all they have...I can't promise that I wouldn't have done something stupid at first.  I wouldn't now but I don't want to move on.  I don't want anyone else.  I want him to come home and hold me again and I don't want to be married; Its suffocating...but I want him back.  I want the man I fell in love with.  I want a damn miracle
