It's funny. When I think about the story of sleeping beauty, I dig it-yes, it would mean missing out on life & all, but in a way I'm already doing that. I often say to my parents that I wish I could be put in a medically induced coma when going through a really rough pain patch. Many fairytales were written as dark, macabre stories that got Disneyfied, but if you look deeper you can see the similarities. The Princess & the pea? Never could get comfortable in her bed. Sound familiar? Lately everything I read, watch, or see makes me think of chronic illness & survival. No, I don't think I'll be fighting off zombies anytime soon but I am fighting, right?
