Sure would, but there's times when it would make sense to not
diminish the pain too much -- that it might be dangerous in the

he needs live feedback or something).

getting, say, a shoulder put back in joint; no real comfort
in knowing they won't remember their screams.
Escpecially if that loved one is me me me. I could talk a good
game to someone else about how not remembering it is all happiness
and light and wonderful and such, but if I were personally looking
at some sort of hideous procedure of torture and pain, I'd not
believe myself one tiny bit. I'd know I'm lying.
On the other hand, I've had my nose re-set and my shoulder
re-set without any drugs to speak of (except maybe the
endorphins associated with shock) and I could personally
live without the memory of those two experiences.
There's probably SOME good in that memory, if nothing else than
knowing that you ARE capable of enduring it and coming out the other
side, but I understand your sentiment, and, if I've ever been through
anything I don't remember, perhaps that's a good thing, if it had
