La douleur de l’exil

Abstract : The expression of pain is very present among the elderly to express their bodily experience or what can be difficult to express with words. This expression, which often manifests as a complaint, is all the more pronounced among subjects having undergone the difficult experience of exile. The most extreme cases concern those who have aged in a foreign land, alone, ill and anxious about dying without the support and security of a family. Clinical experience shows that pain can paradoxically function as a defence in order to feel oneself exist and alive, and to express one’s unhappiness.
