Community Post: Chronic Pain and the Weak Optimist

This optimist occupies a human body that just three years ago felt like 25, which has since then taken a…(ahem) "buffeting" [trying not to roll my eyes here]. The optimist makes jokes and laughs about the warranty running out when you turn 50.  Then I stop laughing and look for something deeper. I look for the strength found not in a 25-year old body, nor in a body that feels like 25—strength found only in weakness.
