No, there is nothing immediately you can do to take away your pain, or make yourself ‘better’, but what there are are distraction techniques, and what better distraction than playing with colour?

Make sure you always have some paints and a paint brush near you, as well as a blank sketchbook.
It’s up to you to play, and who knows, you might end up creating something you quite like!
