On finding out more about pain

To the pharmacy in Emmer green to get something for my head, and - after elbowing half-term hangers-on out of the way - find myself face-to-face with this sign. As vaguely-threating in-store promotions go, it's a cracker.

I'm not too keen, to be honest. And frankly, hitting yourself on the thumb with a hammer is the last thing you want when you're in the chemist for a packet of paracetamol.

Or, on second thoughts, it might exist as a warning to shoplifters.

But pain can be visted upon anybody. Just ask that crazy fool Mr T.

Let's hear it for pain!

Pain is hurty. What else do you need to know?

That's "Pain" with a capital P. The place. Could mean Painstown in Ireland or Painscastle in Wales.

Or it might mean ask them about their French bread.

Fascinating webpage.
Long term pain is pain that lasts longer.

The top five songs to relax to as recommended by people living with persistent pain are:
1. Bridge over troubled water (Simon and Garfunkel)
2. Angels (Robbie Williams)
3. Albatross (Fleetwood Mac)
4. Candle in the wind (Elton John)
5. Easy (The Commodores)

There is a The British Pain Society - No details about how to join or the type of membership.
