An unanswerable question

Yesterday's injection went relatively well. There was screaming; but following all the advice from ice cubes to coughing (thanks Richard) meant that the duration of the screaming was considerably shorter and several decibels lower than last week.

Puffyfingers did ask the unanswerable question though: "Why Mummy? Why do you want to hurt me?"

I stumbled through all the usual trite answers, but it still seems to fall short of a decent explanation.

I can't imagine how hard it must be to be asked that question.

It would turn me into a blithering wreck.
