One might oppose this, however, by asking where do we draw the line in terms of pain negatively impacting one’s well-being? A perfect example of this is athletes and sports injuries. Say an athlete of any sport, any level, blows out their knee. They undergo surgery but the damage is too extensive and the doctor informs them that they can no longer actively participate in their sport due to the nature of the injury. While upsetting to any athlete, there are two ways this can go. On one hand, it could be a high school athlete who does not have the desire to continue their athletics at the collegiate or professional level. Consequently, their athletic career may have ended earlier than they planned and their live may look a little different without daily practices and games and without the constant presence of their teammates, but their life goes on. The injury is still upsetting to them, but their well-being isn’t diminished and they aren’t suffering. Adversely, the athlete could be a professional athlete, one who is using their athletic talents to provide for them self and their family. For that person, the injury takes a completely different toll than it does on the high school athlete. It ends their career. It doesn’t just end their athletic career, but their income-earning career. They lose their job and their ability to earn for them self and whomever else they provide for. This, it could be argued, is why there needs to be a way to objectively put these two scenarios into categories by drawing a line. In cases such as these, the line could be drawn when the pain or result of the pain, in this case the career ending injury, begins to negatively impact day to day functions, as they are synonymous with well-being. If a person cannot perform the simplest of tasks necessary to function throughout their day, their well-being will obviously diminish. It would, therefore, have a negative impact on well-being. Negative impacts on day to day functions can be defined subjectively, because each person’s daily routine varies. Therefore, in the case above, the high school athlete would not have diminished well-being, but the professional athlete would because their everyday functions and routines would change since they would no longer be able to go to work and provide for their family. Other situations this would be applicable in could be two victims of car accidents of differing severity that walk away with different injurie>GET ANSWER
