You shouldn't pity me because I'm ugly....

My sister actually pity's me because I'm ugly.   I don't know why.   Ugly women don't have to deal with nearly as many things as beautiful women do.....   

Thing is, when I go to bed at night, I wake up in another world.  I assume I've been lucky enough to experience an alternate universe.   I live out my day on this other planet called Skydar and when I go to bed there, I wake up here.  Nobody really believes me and that's cool.  You certainly shouldn't, but it doesn't make it any less true.  

On Skydar, I'm a beautiful actress.   I have more problems than you can count.   Cameras are constantly following me around, people scrutinize everything I do and say, my schedule is crazy,  I can't keep a good boyfriend to save my life, drugs are my constant companion, and I meet with a therapist every Tuesday to discuss my depression.   People adore me, I'm beautiful, have all the money in the world, and yet I still can't just be happy.    

On this earth planet, I have a wonderful husband and DD.  I'm plain looking...ugly if you will.  My nose is too big for my head, my eyes are narrow, and my lips are as thin as a sheet of paper.   Men dont look at me the same as they do on Skydar.   They regard me in much more respectful manner.  Thing is, I knew that my husband's affection for me was genuine.  Why wouldn't it be?  Who would choose to keep company with such a plain, ugly woman unless you truly felt a connection? 

Skydar isn't so different from our Earth.   People are just as consumed in their own images and self-interest; however, living there has seemed more like a curse than a blessing.  I am haunted every day in knowing that I have to return to that life where I maintain a false image because I belong to a brand name and not to myself.  

At least here I can enjoy the simple pleasure of lying down on a soft patch of grass at the park while I gaze at the clouds without any disturbance.   

Why can't I just stay awake?  I've tried.  Believe me, I've tried.... I have what they call narcolepsy... Although, I think it's just another name for my curse.  The sleep studies have rendered us no answers.   

I've come to accept my circumstance, but never pity me.  I would choose this life a thousand times over the other.  


Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.
