Will I never recover from the injuries of the past? It seems to me that, from earliest memory, each new injury has left an open wound. Each new blow resonates in all the previous ones. The cumulative effect, then, is geometric in its expanding intensity.
This seems like a hopeless point of view. I agree that it is. I try to change it, but I seem to be ramming into the same wall over and over again. Like when I was a kid and got migraines and sat, banging my head against the wall, because banging my head against the wall made the pain of the headache recede.
