There are many different “aches” people can have. Backache. Toothache. Headache. These are all bearable aches. Why? Because you can treat them all with a simple painkiller. Vicodin. Percocet. Motrin. Ibuprofen. Morphine. Etc. The pain usually will subside within 30 minutes on average.
The one “ache” that is UNbearable in my book is a stomach ache. Why? Because there is nothing that you can do to make the pain go away instantly. And we all know what symptoms accompany a stomach ache. Stomach cramps, vomiting, and/or diarrhea. And the running back and forth to the bathroom a billion times. You are so exhausted. You think you had ran a marathon. Oh, the joys of having a stomach ache. And when you think you got it all out of your system. It starts all over AGAIN!
And all the remedies for a stomach ache: the crackers, toast, ginger ale, peppermint tea, broth, Pepto, TUMS. BLAH!
I would rather have any other ache in the world BESIDES a stomach ache! Who wouldn’t?
