On A Scale of 1-10

On A Scale of 1-10

On a visit to the emergency room in excruciating pain, I was asked, "on a scale of 1 to 10" what is the pain? I said "the pain is off the scale; it is a 14" to which the nurse repeated, "on a scale of 1 to 10, what is this pain?"  I graciously responded, "I live with pain daily. My daily pain is a 5-7. This pain is a 14." She wrote down 10. In trying to create a piece of work about pain, I am reminded of the length and breadth of living with daily pain.  It doesn’t always fit into the medical standard measure of “1 to 10….”
