Nobody's Cheerful Cripple
I'm under the weather with a bad cold right now so my next fabulous post (on 1930s, ruffled, day dresses) is on hold till I feel better.
Until then, amuse yourselves with my cranky self in this little meme. I'm quite sure all of my readers with disabilities and/or chronic pain will be able to relate to the frustration that comes when able-bodied people tell you to "think positive" about your disability. These are people who can't make it through a common cold (like mine) without whinging and getting pretty darned negative. Pain sucks! Not being able to get around sucks! You have every right to get sad about it, or cranky, or irritable. You have every right to have a little cry from time to time, or to have a big, blubbering, snotty, sobbing cry every day. Don't let anyone tell you how to feel! Oddly, once you let it all out, you might find that there is a little room for the positive after all.
So say it together with me now: I'm nobody's cheerful cripple!
Didn't that feel good?
Now back to your regular programming.
