Kurushī (苦しい – Painful/Difficult)

  • Kurushī


    Now I am in a state called kurushī (苦しい).

    Kurushī is a term that describes a physically difficult state due to pain or heat, or a mentally difficult state due to suffering or sadness.

    There are several theories about the etymology of kurushī, but the most accepted theory is that it comes from an onomatopoeia, kurukuru (くるくる).

    Kurukuru represents that something is rotating, and is also used to express that your head spins or you are confused.

    That is to say, kurushī implies that your state is so difficult that you are confused.
