J.Zhu and P.Thagard have argue that emotions contribute significantly to the processes of the action generation as well as action execution and control. Emotion is an underlying factors to interfere before an intention or plan has done that can be realised by muscle-skeleton system. These actions of control are affected unintentionally. For example, your lips tremble while speaking when you are in the state of fear and anxiety or they may shiver with fear before a presentation or interview. Furthermore, pain is also another major factors always associated with these negative emotions.
We may wish to be invincible to pain, but pain has a purpose and it is a necessity to be felt. As humans with no natural armor, we fear pain and try to escape it; however, the rare disease of Congenital Insensitivity to pain reinforces and confirms that pain is the vital teacher essential to our survival, and above all we should all be grateful for pain. Pain can be felt in many different areas in various degrees. We all experience pain differently, but all pain is a property not only of the senses, but of our brain and our expectations as well (Myers 227). There are many different theories of how our bodies experience pain, but the most common is the Gate-Control theory.
To adequately do this I first need to explain what causes pain, state what the medical profession defines as pain, and describe how untreated pain can affect an individual. Pain is caused by a stimulation of the sensory nerve endings from a harmful source or stimuli, with inflammation being the primary cause (Harris, Nagy, & Vardaxis, 2006). Symptoms can range from mild to severe, and are categorised as acute or chronic in nature (Harris et al., 2006). Acute pain begins suddenly and tends to be severe, usually lasting less than 6 months in duration (Mac Lellan, 2006). While chronic pain is prolonged persistent pain that last longer then a period of 3-6 months (Mac Lellan, 2006).
Patients might feel not believed because only they can feel the pain. However, untreated pain symptoms may be associated with impaired activities of daily life and decreased quality of life. Pain is defined in our textbook, “as an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage” (Ignatavicius & Workman, 2016, p 25). Actual pain is understood by most because there is an
I had always know about people thinking they have had every sickness or believe they are suffering from something they are not, I am also aware of the placebo effect, but the fact that people can create such strong distress in their lives from bodily symptoms they experience is something that brought out my curious nature of why and how. Another thing that is very interesting to me is that there are two patterns of somatic symptom disorder, called somatization pattern (the individual experiences a large and even varied number of bodily symptoms) and predominant pain pattern (which is the individual’s primary bodily problem being the experience of pain) (Comer, 2014). The symptoms of somatic symptom disorder can often be hard to notice because it is psychological and many times the pain they express may seem legit. Many people with the somatization pattern of the somatic symptom disorder will experience many long-lasting physical ailments, and these ailments typically have little to no physical basis (Comer, 2014). These people will usually go from doctor to doctor, hospital to hospital just to find some relief or even answers... ... middle of paper ... ...society.
The dictionary definition claims that pain is “physical suffering or discomfort caused by illness or injury.” The dictionary is right to an extent but the dictionary is also the reason people get the definition of pain so twisted. You can not just put a definition on emotional pain. It is different for everyone and for me pain is emotional turmoil to the point of
There are many symptoms and signs of MDD and they always come with a cause, but there are always diagnostics and preventions for this dreadful mood disorder. It is important to understand the symptoms and the signs of someone who may be suffering through MDD. This will make it easy to distinguish who may need help, or more importantly, professional help. The most evident sign to someone with MDD is the feeling of constant sadness and emptiness. This can also include feeling guilty, and being preoccupied with past failures or events.
She constantly thinks she is the most homely and dull person who causes the most inconvenience in the family. This sense of selflessness is mainly due to the physical and sexual abuse brought upon by Daddy Glen, Bone’s stepfather. Unfortunately, the assaults were stretched out over a long period of time, leaving little chance for Bone to recover as an adult if any at all. I decided to take a more scientific approach to discussing Bone’s future as an adult. The most common disorders I feel Bone is likely to face are posttraumatic stress, cognitive distortions, emotional pain, and avoidance, an impaired sense of self and interpersonal difficulties.
Imagery of physical reactions to agony can convey feeling associated with it to the reader, but Dickinson contrasts this with her own views. The physical reactions of a convulsion, a throe, and eyes glazing over are effective as reminders because they all have a connotation of pain and death. Pain is something that tends to evoke an instinctual fear in people, so as Dickinson describes the painful reactions people have, the reader is reminded of this fear. Because it makes reference to death, the strongest of these descriptions is the one referring to the eyes. “The Eyes glaze once- and that is Death-,” (line 5) creates a vision of a slow process of death.
The enemies in our lives are their to balance the goodness that we feel. The world has balance and they provide it. The pain that they furnish us comes in many forms, mental and physical. In Gloucester's case, physical was the main one. Getting your eyes gouged out must be an excruciating way to experience pain.
