We've had pain on our minds. After last week's episode about fear, we decided to release a three-episode series on fear, pain, and ritual. We hope this week's episode helps shine a light on the different types of pain that we ourselves have experienced and witnessed.
In this episode, Rachael shares more about her experience of being diagnosed with stage four cancer as a 24 year old. She compares pain with suffering, and considered how having a diagnosis and treatment can change how you experience pain, suffering or both.
Elizabeth talks about how even though all of life's pain is not like pain in labor - Purposeful, Anticipated, Intermittent and Normal - we can still consider ways in which life's pain might be similar.
