There is a poem I came across when I was angry and upset and it summed up exactly how I was feeling. It is great to have as a constant reminder, it is hard for me to explain why I find this poem so helpful but it is called 'Still I Rise' and it's super long so here are my favourite parts.
Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard
'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin' in my own backyard
Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness
But still, like air, I'll rise.
As important as that poem is to me, it's a bit of a dark note to end on, so here is another arthritis themed joke to end on.
