So, what does all this mean? I'm not exactly sure.
I think I'm supposed to brag about it. Done √
I think I'm supposed to beg for endorsements but I'm not going to do that.
The only reason I'm even writing this post is because maybe, someday, long after I am a medical students' cadaver (a future neurologist?) someone else with a chronic illness may decide that it is OKAY to write about their own experience using humor.
And that to me, is the best reward ever.
