Legitimate depression here. I wouldn't fucking wish it on anyone.
Not at all. I just happen to be level headed and not struggle with being emotionally screwy over any issue.Balvale said:

Compare that to being betrayed, which is easily solved by not associating with those ppl, and getting new companions.

Emotional stress and emotional pain isn't the same, and this thread asks about emotional pain. It's true that short term emotional stress, usually caused from a situation where the brain releases a high amount of activating chemicals and overloads the nervous system can be fatal (usually following a panic attack or similar). Emotional pain, not so much.Amberella said:You also do not know the emotional pain that I have gone through, so that argument is flawed as well. One thing I can say is perhaps I have not experienced severe physical pain, but again you or I don't know if I ever will have to experience that severe physical pain, do we? No. With that said, I am still going to go with emotional pain is worse. Considering I am still deeply scarred from the emotional trauma/pain I went through.
A few facts about emotional pain.
- Circumstantial evidence is that chronic emotional stress can be associated with heart disease and early death.
- Also it known that intense emotional stress can also lead to a heart attack.
- In fact, emotional pain involves the same brain regions as physical pain.
The right side of my body is constantly aching. Yet it doesn't even compare to the emotional pain I feel all the time. To use your example, trying to watch a funny movie is more likely to make me think about how much I miss the times I was happy, rather than making me feel better.zelda2fanboy said:Not if you live in America and don't have money. My knee hurts and there's no way in hell I can get that fixed. My best bet is that it might go away on its own, which is not guaranteed to happen. Emotional pain has always gone away on its own for me. Things can distract you from emotional pain, but not from physical pain. For example, you can sometimes laugh at a funny movie when depressed, but if your ribs are broken, laughing sucks.smithy_2045 said:Emotional, by far. It's much easier to find the root cause of physical pain and fix it.
