...at least in the brain: Brain scan shows rejection pain.
I don't like the way you post.
Wow, we're really dishing out the hurt @ the HTF then.
*sniffle* You guys are killing me!
I heard about this yesterday. The study is... interesting. It plays into theories that all pain is truly an interpretation of the brain, sensing danger. With that in mind, we could make the assumption that the brain could shut out pain as well, in the cases of genetics where there are people who don't feel pain, as well as a justification of those people who train themselves to shut out pain. It's interesting.
Reminds me of a lesson from Sociology class many moons ago. The theory was some ancient tribes wouldn't physically banish poeple, they would merely ignore them. While the victims were free to remain "hanging around", no one was allowed to acknowledge their presence. The ultimate "communal snub". Sounds like it was pretty effective !
It's like the roman catholic "Anathema" from the Augustine days.
Guess maybe Percocet may really be the true cure all Jeff
This doesn't surprise me at all. Emotional pain (including that resulting from rejection) to my mind runs deeper, hurts more, and hurts for a longer time than most physical pain.
That explains it...my high school girlfriend dumped me and I've had Post Traumatic Stress Disorder for over 30 years!
