The social influences on pain also show the benefits of having support from those who care about you. In another study that used the same ice bucket method, people had a greater tolerance for the painful cold when another person silently observed the experiment, compared with being alone with the experimenter. And if the “observer” was a friend of the same sex, the participants had higher tolerance even if the friend was not actually inside the room, but was merely nearby.
Given the many influences on how we experience pain, it is no wonder that finding relief from pain can be complex and frustrating. The good news is, each of these influences also represents a way to manage pain. Helping people change their thoughts and feelings about their pain are important parts of pain management, as is maintaining social relationships.Does the Brain Really Feel No Pain?

Just continuing to exist is a powerful feeling, knowing it proves all the religious naysayers wrong.
While gay and lesbian people are as diverse as the rest of the population, their shared experience of discrimination creates common health issues. Australian society generally regards heterosexuality as the most acceptable sexual orientation, which means that gay men, lesbians and bisexual people may be marginalised and discriminated against.
Transgender and intersex people may also experience marginalisation and discrimination in relation to their health and wellbeing. Intersex refers to a biological condition where a person is born with reproductive organs and/or sex chromosomes that are not exclusively male or female. The previous term for intersex was hermaphrodite.
