What Happens When We Ignore Messages?

I'm not talking about voice mail messages, or email messages. I am referring to pain in our bodies that can be physical but are often emotional.

Expected Pain vs. Unwelcome Pain

Today I was certain which came first. First I had the egg and then a couple of hours later - pain reared its head - searing blinding pain. I didn't know if I was going or coming.
