The only valid response
when you simply cannot describe the pain
which you are experiencing
. Sometimes it's because you can't get enough air
to really vocalize
it, as when you get hit in the stomach
and you can't scream
because there's no air - there may be just enough air to say, "It hurts..." before collapsing
Sometimes the pain is so unbearable that you cannot even scream - rocking-yourself-on-the-floor-in-a-fetal
type of pain.
Note: the pain being experienced need not be physical
. It could be emotional
, as a response tor just being told that your SO or child died.
This is the type of pain which cannot be expressed because there is no word or phrase
s it, yet it is still communicate
d by the understate
d phrase, "It hurts", and the way your body and face are grotesque
by your body's involuntary reaction
to the pain.
