As My Joints Turn

My Autoimmune Soap Opera

I saw Wonder Woman today.  It was incredible.  As I watched the gorgeous Superhero battling the bad guys, I admit I wished I could be her.  To be tall, beautiful and a genuine badass like Diana Prince??  One can dream….

Then I thought about it and realized that I am often Wonder Woman.  I often wonder how long it will take for me to get out of bed in the morning due to a stiff back.  I wonder how much my ankle will swell and hurt while running errands.  I wonder how long it will take me to fall asleep at night as the clock ticks past 2 am and the alarm is set for 5 am.  I wonder how much pain I will have at the end of the work day.  Most especially, I wonder how this ended up being my life.

But each day, I get out of bed even if I have to crawl out of it.  I still run those errands with a swollen and painful ankle.  I get up and work a full day on as little as 3 hours of sleep.  Most importantly,  I am living my life as best I can with chronic pain.

So there you have it.  I am Wonder Woman!
