These three words are too small to envelop their own meaning.
I want a bigger word.
Pain can absolutely take over your life. Ruin it, exhaust it, soak it completely in shit. Guilt, shame, intolerance, misunderstanding, inability. It creeps into your mind and soul.
Love can change your whole life. Change the momentum. It can feel great, it can hurt like hell and it will cause you to do the stupidest and most wonderful things.
Chronic. Nobody knows what that means unless you recreate it and evolve it into a word like “forever”. Put it next to “acute” and it’s lost.
