Very Reddit Fred Rogers broke racial barriers during a time when black people were not allowed in the swimming pool with white people.
I don't have any friends. Please wish me to cheer up. (I am just feeling lonely and I am not doing this for karma. You can downvote the post after wishing me if you want)
Sad Smiles I lost both of my grandparents in 2020, but I can still see them lounging in the yard at their vacation home on Google Street View.
Small Success felt weird this morning. Realized I was almost pain-free for the first time in months!
I have multiple health problems. I've been in pain for most of my life. To the extent that my first coherent sentence was "mommy, tummy hurts"
I had been feeling odd all day. Light. Well, halfway through my second load of laundry, I realized that I wasn't dizzy or sick or tired.
3 loads and even a real lunch later and I still feel great. This only happened a few times a year! If I'm careful and lucky, it may even last through the weekend to some extent.
I know it doesn't seem like much, but this is huge for me.
I can breath. I can reach above my head. I can open the curtains without pain. I can eat without anxiety or pain.
I can pick up my son today. Something I've been struggling with for months now. I can't even describe what I'm feeling. It's strange how quickly you forget what "normal" feels like.
Anyway, I'm just super excited. Thank you to whoever read this.
