The thing with the pain from grief is that it never really goes away. You go along feeling good then, like an old sports injury it flares up again. Just like that old injury, when the weather changes it makes itself known to you. You might not feel it for sometime, almost even forget about it. Then you move wrong, or move too much and there it is right back to haunt you! Applying bandages or ointments just temporarily ease the pain. Eventually you realize, this pain will always be there. A dull ache to remind us of what is lost, what has changed forever. What do we do with this? We keep trying to ease the pain however we can. We become accustomed to it like an old friend and accept that it will always be with us. After all, it was the love of the game, the joy of the sport that brought us the pain to begin with.
