A list of reasons people having a bad pain day might claim that they are good.


4 Reasons I Say ‘I’m Good’ When I’m Actually In Pain

  1. “I’m having a good pain day.”
  2. “I just don’t want to explain how crappy I feel.”
  3. “I’m straight up lying. I feel horrible, but I want to get through the day.”
  4. “Sometimes it’s easier to not talk about the pain and just cope with it.”

You never know what someone is going through.
