I decided that I had nausea because I was giving birth to myself
I love to make people laugh, and at The Wellness Community I’d found my role again. It didn’t matter to me that I was Gilda Radner. It wasn’t my reputation. It was who I was and who I always have been – someone who is funny.
You know the joke about the optimist who says, “If the house is full of shit there must be a pony somewhere”? Sometimes when I was wandering around and I was so nauseous I thought, With all this nausea there must be a baby somewhere. Then I realized at The Wellness Community that I was the baby who came out of this. Even in this form – no hair, kinda puffed out – this little person gets born again. I get my life again. I decided that I had nausea because I was giving birth to myself.
