  • Being on fire is no fun, but it takes some time for the pain to set in. I broke my neck once. That hurt. But the fire thing was worse.
  • The worst pain that I had ever expeienced was that of not knowing when the pain would end. I had a problem 3years ago and I put on such a brave face getting up and going to the bathroom and stepping out for a smoke talking rationally to the nurses while waiting to get the ultra sound images while sitting with the teck, she said "wholly shit" jumping up and literally running to the doctor leaving me there to squirm around I could not find any comfort. The tech and the doc asked me how I was feeling and I told them no different than before the ultrasound apparently a vital organ had exploded in my body and was in need of hospital care that could not be provided at the community hospital. Shortly after they told me that I was to be transfered back to canada immidiatley for my kiddneys were now starting to shut down I was sent in to oblivion with copius amounts of morphine that resembled the character in the movie STAY for thats how I now percived things I seen people in that semi dream like state and talk to people who I had seen in my hospital room the only problem was that these people who i was talking to had been dead for along time not able to discern the dead from the living people thought i was talking to my self. I swear this really happened I told my aunt that Fred was just hear sitting in that chair I asked her "did you talk to hime?. This was all very fine but I still felt the uncontollable pain in my stomach oh my god how I prayed squirming around getting the iv tangled and then the nurse kept pumping the morphine in to me every 10minutes and I could not keep still from the pain in my stomach oh god stop stop the pain I mean it was so bad I was going religious right there on the spot. I was not allowed to drink any water for they the doctor wanted to look at the other organs in my stomach with out any thing in my stomach. and then more morphine god help. I was getting to the point of hostility the pain was driving me mad and more morphine. and my brother showed up at the hospital and I told him look I know I'am dying, let me choose where I die. I asked him to get my clothes I don't want to die hear, and to please give me somthing to drink for I felt so thirsty despite the fact they were giving me iv liquids. My brother and his wife were there and i again asked them for my clothes no I can't help you, he didn't even give me a coke no fluids he told me. I fought like this for a week in ICU. I was finallly stabilized and was moved to a private room. I have never felt so much pain before i had no idea how bad pain could get. I was a changed man after that, my total stay was 7days ICU and 24days recooperating in the hospital. I'm to this day a changed person, I no longer take the health of my body or my mind for granted, for I was given a second chance of life to not hurt is a blessing. I'm for every indebited to the hospital in both south east alaska, and to those staff in whitehorse general hospital. Quite inadvertantly my family doctor was the person who had ordered a plane waiting for me once I crossed into the canadian side of the border and had me medivact to a canadian hospital. I owe so much to so many who saved my life. I give thanks to all, and my blessing to all that have to be in hospital care or home care and may they get well soon. god bless
  • Well..let's see...I have given birth three times, I had a shattered hip joint, and a severe gall bladder attack (which was almost as bad if not AS bad as the labor pains), but none of those can come close to the pain I felt at the funeral of my three month old grandson.
  • Physical, and it was awful. I threw up 25 times in the span of 2 days! Emotional pain usually lasts a lot longer, but it's easier to deal with. And this, coming from an angsty 30-yr-old disabled woman who probably will be forever stuck with that teenage syndrome. Human beings have a greater capacity for enduring emotional pain, than physical pain. So it's natural that a person would say that the worst pain they've ever felt was emotional. This is simply because people are better equipped to deal with emotional anguish. If physical pain is measured up to DOL 10, I'm guessing that emotional pain would be measured up to (hypothetical) DOL 15.
  • Emotional
  • Emotional and it hurts a whole lot more than physical pain.
  • Physically--pleurisy I felt like my bones were breaking. In my shoulders, back, and knees. It was painful! Emotionally--anorexia More than the physical aspects of self-imposed starvation, the emotional pain was killing. And I was 15 years old, a time in a girl's life where she can't deal with her emotions properly!
  • Emotionally, it would have to be the feeling of failure that was caused by a freinds deceit. Physically, any ligament tear sucks really bad.

  • these questions
  • Emotional pain.
  • i surly tell you that love is the worst kind of pain!!
  • I used to think having a hysterectomy was but I honestly think that emotional pain is worse than any kind of physical pain. Physical pain heals..emotional doesn't. LONELINESS is the worst kind of pain there is to me. It doesn't heal. put me in a room with 10 trillion people and I am still lonely. so I would have to say Loneliness
  • To me its a broken heart. I have had several over the last few years. Some were much more painful than most people can EVER imagine. Dealing with a new one right now. I can't eat. I can't sleep. I can't shut my mind off. I feel like throwing up and my head is throbbing. Trying to convince myself that I want to continue existing. So tired of feeling like this. I have been knocked down so many times, and gotten right back up. Thinking of just staying down this time. Can't figure it out. I usually bounce right back, but I can't seem to this time.

  • Emotionally: The feeling that I'll never be with the man that I love because he is happily married. Physically: The time in Florida hen I got such a bad sunburn that I could hardly move and the blisters were gigantic!
  • Physical pain would win for acute pain. Giving birth was horribly painful, so I erase that from my memory. But emotional pain is chronic and much harder to bear. Loneliness was tough on me last year while I was alone in Florida, but the unjust death of a loved one ranks higher on the horrible scale.
  • Wow, I think when I had to put my cat down I lost my best friend and when I had to find a home for my dog I had ever since she was 6weeks old because the landlord said no more pets. My heart hurt inside so bad.
  • Emotionally - loneliness. And not just the "I'm home and bored and all my friends are on vacation" loneliness... the "my family disowned me a year ago, I lost all my friends in that struggle, I've just become a mother, my baby is hungry but I have no milk, going through postpartum depression and I have no one but my husband who, god bless him, is trying hard but has NO idea what's going on..." kind of loneliness. Physically - after giving birth, I haemorrhaged. The postpartum bleeding actually hurt WORSE than the 37 hour labor and unmedicated delivery.

  • I had 50 staples ripped out of my feet with a needle nose pliers after a big surgery. My grandmother was holding my hand while I was screaming curse words.

  • Emotionally - broken heart from various things such as death, break ups, etc. Physically - dry sockets when i got my wisdom teeth removed. man that sucked. i was moaning and crying for a whole weekend before i could get to the dentist on monday. i hope until child birth i don't have to experience anything like that again.
  • My worst pain both emotionally and physically was when I was given to understand that the marriage of my eldest son and my eldest daughter-in-law is on the rock and may be breaking up eventually.

  • When my first long term girlfriend broke up with me for a reason that I never found out. She even refused to talk to me forever after that. There was no fight or anything. I can only assume that her mormon family and friends turned her against me. Damn christians.

  • E: When I found out that I was too weak to commit suicide. P: When I had food poisoning from Elio's Pizza. I was so scared I actually prayed to god :)

  • my worst pain whould probaly be my heart broken by first love.
  • The worst emotional pain was when my house burned down and I lost EVERYTHING. I was in shock for several days. Even now, 2 years later, there are some tough times. But at least nobody died, so it could have been worse! We had a victim here in San Diego who had a plane crash into his house; he lost his house, his wife and his children. Now THAT must have been unbearable!
