You like to make your presence known suddenly, sharply, shockingly and oh so very painfully. You bore pain into my face that I struggle to come to terms with. You are a vicious ice pick being hammered into my ear. Experiencing you is like being struck by lightning to my jaw and cheeks, a live wire connecting to my teeth and shocking me in waves. Set that all on fire, while be crushed by a concrete block all at the same time and that is you, in a nutshell.
As if the pain wasn’t enough, you now affect my financial stability, my mental state at times, my friendships, future, confidence and social life, to mention a few. I fear a breeze, coldness, brushing my teeth, brushing my hair, kissing a loved one, eating. All the things that can set you off. All your little triggers.
