Same areas of the brain get activated when we get social rejection, or the betrayal of a loved one as when we spill hot coffee on our arm. In other words the emotional pain hurts the same as the physical pain. So if there are drugs for physical pain, than they might work for the emotional one? Like:” take 2 pills in the morning to feel better all day?”
But numbing our pain is a good thing? If we never felt angry could we have ever apreaciated happiness? Or fear to admire courage?
Maybe to enjoy the beauty in our lifes we must enjoy the pain….
