Elton John’s birthday is right around the corner so I’ve been listening to his music recently. Yes, in addition to being a Prince fan, I’m also crazy about Sir Elton. Detecting my odd, non-conformist streak yet?
Anyway, “I’m Still Standing” is one of my favorite EJ songs. For those unfamiliar, here are a few of the lyrics:
Don’t you know I’m still standing better than I ever did
Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid
I’m still standing after all this time
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind
I’m still standing yeah yeah yeah
The song is about a relationship but the more I listen, the more I realize these words apply to my uterine fibroid tumors. The dang things ruled my life. Kept me trapped in the house and drained of energy just like… a bad relationship.
Well, my bad relationship is over and I’m STILL standing. Everybody sing. YEAH, YEAH, YEAH!
No matter where you are along your fibroid journey, are you still standing?
Are you healing your spirit and mind as well as your body after your fibroid procedure?
What makes you mad, sad, or glad when you think about your fibroids?
How are you using your fibroid voice?
