    I think mental pain is worse than physical pain because mental pain has something to do with your mind. If someone gets into your your head, I think they will control you. For example, if someone has seen a loved one killed they are going to be a totaly different person because they are goin to act paranoid. The person, who witnessed the act, is going to have flashbacks at any time. If they hear about a person who saw a loved one killled they are going to have a flashback.

    I think mental pain is worse than physical pain because if you have a broken leg you want have that same leg broken for the rest of your life. If somebody die in your family you would think about that same pearson over and over again.

      Does your reply about the broken leg support your statement that mental pain is worse?

      Is the word “somebody” singular or plural? Does the verb agree with it in number? How might you make your response easier for your reader to understand?

      Please remember to always demonstrate your understanding of capitalization rules. You may also want to revisit past tense forms of irregular verbs. I am curious about why you chose mental pain. Your response does not really explain. You may want to refer to your class journal. Perhaps you elaborated there.

    I think mental pain is worse than physical pain, because if you are hurt physically the pain would soon go away. If you are hurt mentally it controls your mind and messes you up. Now everytime you think about your mental problem, you immediately get emotional
