In an article on healthcentral.com, Karen Lee Richards discusses how Mark Collen dealt with pain and conveyed it to his doctor-through art and poetry. I think that if that is something that can help you deal, then go for it. I know art and writing have helped me to work through a lot of feelings!
Mark Collen's website, where others share their artwork about pain, can be found at: www.painexhibit.com/
Today, I am grateful for a wonderful dinner with loved ones last night, a morning with mom, friends, family and God.
