Experiencing Discomfort

It’s a euphamism of course.

They hardly ever say “This will hurt” or “Prepare for some suffering.”

It’s always stuff like “There may be a little pinch” or “Just some pressure” or “You might experience some discomfort.”

I can’t say for sure if blunt truth would be better, but I can say, I don’t really like the euphamisms. It feels a little too close to lying.

Anyhow, I’m in pain, feeling grumpy, suffering, and don’t want to go to work although I have to. I suppose that’s one way to define “experiencing discomfort.”
