A Girl that feels no Pain
Posted 12/26/09
Well, this will require a lot of work on the side of the adults. They'll have to talk with her openly about her disease, and thoroughly make her understand the issue at hand, and once done so..she'll be able to cope with this situation more properly, and lower the cases of medical incidences.

It must be awkward to see someone gulp down a whole cup of hot tea...without expressing pain..well, they could teach her how to measure the temperature of her food first..before eating it...

When you look at it, it's kinda not the disease no one wants. I would want to feel pain to know that I am still alive. Man, I really pity her. I'll pray for her.

It's a curse cause when the body feels pain, we tend to move away from it.

The thing is, she can't feel pain, so she doesn't know when to move away.

She could be burning to death and she wouldn't realize it.

This also happens in leprosy, if I am not mistaken. They lose feeling and hurt themselves and it gets infected.

Weird. But how do you see it as a curse, OP?


She isn't mature enough to realize if something is going to do serious damage, and she will not mature properly without experience of certain pains. For example. Kids get hurt alot because they don't know "The limits". So the get hurt, but then learn that either you get experience enough to pull it off, or you don't pursue it on such a level that you would feel that pain. By nature, us humans do not think about the bones that can be broken, and how dammage to our body can ruin our entire lives.

That is why mentally, pain exists to keep us realizing what has a higher risk to our own body. It is just a form of self awareness that we learn over time through experience of pain. For example, "If you burn yourself playing with fire, odds are, you will try to be more careful not burn yourself the next time"... Why do we not want to burn ourselves with fire?! Because even if there was no pain of being burnt, you would die if you where set of on. This girl can still die from physical pain. Her "body" still feels the pain, her brain just doesn't register it. With enough pain alone, she can go into shock and die.

Pain is the message that limits what the physical body is capable of. It keeps you in check so you don't go overboard and do something stupid and wreckless. This kids "Sense" of stupid or wreckless is no existant because there is no threshold the enforce the risk. Pain is a "GOOD THING"

Just because she doesn't feel it in her brain, doesn't mean that there isn't pain though. Her body still feels it, her mind just doesn't recieve the signals. With the right kind of pain, she can still go into a state of shock and die. Without the pain mentally, what's to stop her from doing something that will really hurt her or kill her? She can't learn from experience that something shouldn't be done because there is no pain to teach her!

yeah but her survival level isnt too good.
the reason why we feel pain is to know how much our body can take
and that is to lessen the degree of damage we get.
if you dont feel pain, you're more likely to not know your body's tolerance
and this can cause further damage. UNLESS you've got ultra regenerative power
then don't wish for this lol
