Now Playing: Day 4056-FREE YOURSELF...MY JOURNEY
Topic: You Are Not A Comic Book
I used to believe I was Wonder Woman...but not anymore. 24 hours after surgery my body began to reject everything. Infection began and with it came pain that I have never felt before.
I'm not sure why I believed I was Wonder Woman when it came to pain...but not anymore.
Patients, we are not comic characters and I am not Wonder Woman. Pain medication has a real purpose. Or as surgical paperwork so properly put it, "Don't try to be stoic."
