    As someone who has a chronic pain condition I truely understand. What some people don't understand is the stress that pain can cause after a while. Enough to raise a normal blood pressure to a HIGH one. For me all it takes some days is to drop a pen or a soda top and you would think that world war 3 just broke out. I can't imagine having PTSD on top of the pain. Also for me there are days where like some people with migraines I don't want to hear a single noise and really prefer as little light as possible. Fortunately the er here has NO tv. Some of the clinics do, but most of them keep it on a local channel that does the "big" news of the day, but mostly local and weather. TV's have no place in the ER.
