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!
