She wanted me to list my top five most painful experiences, and she wasn't accepting of a flippant answer, so I actually had to think about it and this is what I came up with. 1 is the worst pain and 5 is the least of any major pain experiences I've had:
- Tonsillectomy recovery
- Gallbladder attacks
- Breaking off the funny bone in my elbow
I realized after that I am very fortunate that this is the worst I've ever had to endure.
