Hello Ryan, I was searching thru this site to understand a few things about chronic pain and I came across your comments to someone. At first I glanced only thinking you were looking for the same information then Jehovah's name caught my eye. I have to say that I was happy to read what you told that person. After reading your intro-I can honestly say that what I feel in many ways about joy and pain, you have expressed much better than I.
My joy has always been due to theocratic activity and my pain from my own imperfections & loss of loved ones.
Thank you for sharing. @ryanhewett
