What are your associations with the word “Superwoman?”
Let’s see what Google Images thinks “Superwoman” means:
Here are my associations, at this point:
- Looking at that image, I feel safe in saying that nobody would mistake me for Superwoman.
- Despite my physical differences from the above image, I often think I can do it all (including giving perfect credit for anything I use in this blog).
- As I’ve dealt with serious medical issues since I was born, I have always gotten back to school and work really quickly. My parents and my doctors, when I was growing up, subscribed to the belief that getting back to “normal” would be healthier for me, no matter what operations or other medical issues I encountered. I think that has contributed to my belief that I can always do that, no matter what ailment I encounter.
- I don’t think I’m going to be getting back to work as soon as I assumed, this time around.
Why? Because I — like Marissa11586 — am NOT Superwoman.
Then, who am I?
Maybe a new title would be a good start.
How about this: Super-Recovery-Woman! Able to take a break and focus on her own needs, with a single bound!
I’ll get back to you about a costume, if I can figure something out.
Thanks to Nebaroth (for the illustration), to Marissa 11586, to women who are as super as they can be (within reasonable limits), and to you — of course! — for reading this, today.
