    Emotionally, it would be part of Trepidus, which is around horror, fear, terror. I can't think of a better spot for it, if I were to include it.

    But I've never been under intense physical pain before, like torture. I can only imagine, emotionally, fear is present.

    Either way, it seems you're all accepting the dimensions of pain I've come up with? Or are satisfied for the most part?

    I really think there should be a category for physical pain
    Because in a way, it is a type of pain inside your brain

    I would say physical pain is based on your brain's chemistry.
    Some people enjoy being hurt, others find it to be terrifying.

    It goes under a new category though, like, Suicidal. You just want it all to end

    Isn't suicidal a conclusion though?
    I dont know about you but when I thought about suicide ( I have before, dont call me emo bitch, yall havent heard about it till now) I didnt feel pain, I was more not wanting to experience it again. ( No, Im not suicidal anymore, I usually laugh if something hurts now) I do want to hear what you have to say though, it's a concept Im not fully convinced n myself since I dont correctly feel emotions.

    A squirrel somewhere in China already knows that, Mike. lol I know you thought about it before just because I know you. I've even thought about suicide. Wouldn't do it though. There are people I care about and things I still need to do.

    "Suicidal" is a state. "Self-destructive," in another word. It's not an actual emotion. Emotion leads to it.

    Also, I will be so bold as to say that physical pain doesn't even deserve a spot. For one, it's not an emotion. Secondly, you have to look at physical pain in the situation, not just the pain itself. It isn't relative. Being tortured versus falling off a bike and breaking a leg is a completely different set of circumstances. For one, your life is in danger and in the hands of someone dangerous. Here we'll see Desertus or Trepidus.

    But the physical pain itself is not an emotion, and honestly, I will say that the thought process during physical pain barely registers. Why do I say this? Think about the circumstances of when you last felt great pain. What were you thinking? Here is what I thought:

    GOD DAMMIT MOTHER FUCKER SHIT BITCH BASTARD!!!!

    And then it ended. Physical pain is definitely unpleasant, but it does not truly register. We fear it, certainly, and we fear more of it.

    Also remember there is a very solid line between pain of the body and pain of the heart. Remember that in this case, pain is synonymous with "emotional suffering", not just all things that have to do with the mind.

    Moreover, what I am filing as a pain must linger in a person's mind, make them who they are. No one actually thinks back to great physical pain as much as they do the circumstances around it (if those circumstances are even important).

    Is anyone following what I mean?

    I get it. I hate pyschical pain. (Weird, considering some of the problems I've had, but it never hurt too much, so.) But I'd rather feel the pyshical pain than the emotional. Emotional just fucks me up.

    You spelled physical wrong. =P Remind we I have a lot of things to teach you. =P

    Yeah, but physical pain is nothing against emotional. Emotional is another level.

    Yes, German class is really screwing with my English. I was much better at spelling and talking before German fucked with my head. Stupid Frau D. I love her to death, though. ^_^
