  11. What Is Pain?

    • By Kathleen B. Hagen
    • Published: November 2008

    Pain is not being able to do what you did yesterday.
    Pain is not remembering what you did and why or where you bought things.
    Pain is not being able to see the flowers or the children on the other side of the room.
