A pill for pain

December 13, 2007 at 9:03 am (Uncategorized)

Everything is fast these days. Fast food, speed dating, fast Internet (ok, I’m hopeful), fast communication. . .It all happens so quickly. But isn’t it funny how we haven’t yet invented a quick cure for a broken heart?

Imagine being able to take a little pill to fix that ailment. Stop the pain in a matter of moments. Let it dissolve with the blue/pink/yellow tablet you’ve swallowed. Or perhaps we should make it medicine (some people don’t like pills you know).

You could rake in millions of rands if you could invent such a cure. It would heal billions per day because there’s certainly enough heartache to go around – especially this year (more about that later).

But I’m guessing if it was so easy to mend a broken heart then none of the stuff that came before it would be worth it, right? Because the pain means that there has been some pleasure; something that makes it hurt when it’s no longer there.

And if we can take the pain away in an instant then what’s the point of trying, striving, to achieve the pleasure?

Still. . .I could really use a few of those to hand out right now. . .

    Ag you know. . .it’s just been a very, very kak year for so many people I know.
    Heard a colleague has a brain tumour; another had her heart broken by an asshole; a friend is going for an op because she fucked up her foot; another lost a huge contract; another was rushed to hospital and is on her last legs because the cancer has spread too far. . . it just goes on and on and on.
    Nothing bad has happened to me but I feel for my friends and colleagues. I wish I could help them.
