It's about keeping emotions in and one thing I keep to myself is pain. This piece depicts the physical pain of sinus headaches, something I get a lot in public but never tell anyone.
I am sensitive to temperature change and it feels like one side of my skull is on fire while the other is iced over. It feels like the two forces are trying to force my skull apart from the inside out and it can be so bad that I can't function properly.
Why I don't tell anyone? I don't like to bug people with my problems, let alone my internal problems. I suffer in silence and deal with it in my own time.
