The Narcissectomy

by Lynn S.

 I need a narcissectomy.
He's made a total wreck of me.
My symptoms all demand a cure.
Removal is required, I'm sure.

I shake each time I think of him.
I want to act upon each whim.
I'm on a rollercoaster ride...
My words are loving, then they're snide.

My appetite has disappeared
And when I sleep my dreams are weird.
I've lost the will to concentrate.
My work's not done, my bills are late.

My friends all say that I'm obsessed
And that 'No Contact' would be best.
I've tried but sometimes it's in vain.
I just want him to feel this pain.

Of course, he won't because he's proved
That he has had his heart removed.
So why can't I let go of this?
Just what exactly do I miss?

Cuz anything that hurts this much
Sure isn't love and knowing such,
I'll have that narcissectomy
And when I'll do I'll be pain-free.

The Healing Power of Humor from Psych Central


Today we have a better understanding of how laughter affects human physiology. It:

Reduces pain. Our bodies produce pain-killing hormones called endorphins in response to laughter.
Strengthens immune function. A good belly laugh increases production of T-cells, interferon and immune proteins called globulins.
Decreases stress. When under stress, we produce a hormone called cortisol. Laughter significantly lowers cortisol levels and returns the body to a more relaxed state.

The other good news is that humor has a positive impact on intellectual and emotional functioning. It:

Helps put life’s trials and tribulations into healthy perspective by making them seem smaller.
Aids us in overcoming fear.
Allows us to take ourselves less seriously.
Triggers our creativity.
