Physical vs. emotional pain?

I wanted to ask a question, as I do not have the answer.  I am curious what you all think:

Do you think it is more difficult to experience physical pain or emotional pain on a daily basis?

I just wondered what your opinion and thoughts are.

Good Question Heidi,

I have both, so I can't really answer.

They are both inter-twined.

Like "Barbed" Wire...:(...

I don't know where one begins and the other ends...

Hug.  I appreciate you responding.

Do you think maybe I should not have asked this, I did not intend to offend anyone.

How are you doing?

I read somewhere once that people who experience physical pain are at risk for depression and suicide so I would think that maybe physical pain would be harder to deal with.

i use to always say emotional was the most difficult, until last year and the year before, my physical pain peaked and now to answer that i think it depends how i'm feeling at the time

Hi Heidi!

I think it was an awesome question...:)

I have been going through a bit of a rough patch, how are you doing?

Thank you all for your comments.  I appreciate you all sharing.

I was asked how am I doing?  Not so good.  Long story.  Lots of medical problems continue and have to have yet another CT scan next Tuesday on my abdomen.  This is like my 4th CT scan :(  I am so frustrated and they can't figure out what is going on.  Thanks for checking on me.
