I know...it's a strange way but, I have been enjoying Shark Week on Discovery Channel. Besides learning new stuff (useless but, interesting), seeing the survivors of attacks and their attitudes and new lives is morale boosting. I don't have massive ugly scars, nightmares of being eaten alive, or lost limbs. It makes me grateful to have suffered an attack by a predator that leaves less ugly damage.
The shows also cool me somewhat because I'm looking at water in this heat, travel to interesting destinations, and can admire how an ancient (prehistoric) creature has adapted and survived in spite of us humans. I feel better about my condition and feel stupid complaining about it.
