A couple of years ago, when it became apparent my pain wasn’t going away anytime soon, it was really depressing me and wrecking my generally sunny outlook! It was really getting me down. And I needed to acknowledge it. Be IN it but not OF it.
I needed new language to express where I was. So I created a new word. It’s meant to be a hybrid. Shit-tastic: it’s when I feel super shifty but I have a fantastic attitude about it. As in, this ain’t gonna stop me!
Yes, my pain is large and often debilitating, but it doesn’t OWN me, I own it. It doesn’t define me.
Words have power. Invented words have even more weight for me, a personalized mythological density beyond their simple definition.
Shit-tastic. Try it on for Size! See how it changes you.
It’s healing Me!
