If you are looking for a funny cat video or pictures of beautiful people smiling, check the rest of the internet. I interrupt this regularly witty blog for a shot of reality, which unfortunately is a hard thing to come by in our modern “A-Okay” world. I could pay a therapist $100/hour to listen to me rant and rave, but lucky me, I have a blog. I can let the world know how much I suck and later my husband can use it against me when he finally gets enough of my shit and files for divorce, and my kids…oh yeah, my kids. I may have to delete this blog so they won’t come across it one day and need more therapy than I do. Okay, might as well end with a bang right?
Today I had more than my fair share of humility forced upon me. I have Multiple Sclerosis. Everyone has something, so I’m sure you can all relate, but for explanation sake, this disease causes my legs not to work, etc. Another crappy fact about this disease is that it affects my bladder. I take meds, which help, but long story short, my family and I go eat. Suddenly I have to pee. Immediately. Like NOW, damn it!
My daughter graciously holds the door open, and I somewhat make it in the restroom, but see, my legs hate me. They are like those bullies in elementary school who can not rest until someone feels worse than they do. So, they lock out…picture two 4 by 4’s sticking out of my atrophied butt sitting in my wheelchair. Needless to say, it’s hard to transfer from one chair to another with two boards extending from your ass, and I didn’t make it. Yeah, laugh, stare, pity me, whatever. So I do what I can, eventually get home, ball my eyes out while I take a shower, and decide…
So what if it isn’t a cute kitten video. This is reality. I’m sick of smiling faces on Facebook (which I don’t even have anymore because of all the stupid fake crap) and TV and everything else telling me how perfect the world is and everyone is and how great life in general is.
Sometimes I have good days. Sometimes I laugh, and sing, and dance in my wheelchair. Other days I piss myself. Welcome to the real world ladies and gentlemen. It feels really good to get that out. Thanks for the therapy, see you next time.
