Hurting and Healing Characters
Humans generally prefer to be healthy and without pain. We can increase the odds of staying that way by eating proper amounts of nutritious foods, getting enough exercise, and not engaging in optional behavior that is likely to harm us. Nonetheless we cannot entirely avoid illness or injury, and barring major medical advances we will all ultimately age and die.
