When you play a MMORPG, your character can get debuffs or conditions which impact how they move, perform, and otherwise function.  Most of the time these “condis” wear off after a given amount of time or can be cleansed through item use or a spell.  There are days when I wish that this was the case for real life, too.

Every single day and every single moment of every day, I deal with pain.  Some times I can squish it into a box, tightly close that box and tie down the lid and present to the world a “normal”, happy, carefree 30-something.  Other days, it gets ahead of me and no amount of medication, visualization, or action can lessen its impact.  Simply put, God gave me a broken body and my challenge is to make the best out of each day that I have it.

Over the last couple of years, I’ve been compiling a list of illnesses or conditions which I have been diagnosed with.  These range from autoimmune diseases to chronic pain issues and beyond.  Some of them include:

  • Irritable Bowl Syndrome – Essentially eating sucks.
  • Inflammatory Bowl Disease – Digestion sucks.
  • Crohns Disease
  • Chronic Pelvic Pain – Essentially, always abdomen pain
  • Endometreosis
  • Cystitis
  • Fibroids
  • Allodynia – Trouble swallowing
  • Ptosis – Drooping of the eyelid
  • Anisocoria – One eye dilates and you lose vision
  • Migraine
  • Uhthoff’s Phenomena

Anyways… life goes on.  Even if I get to draw on sandpaper rather than normal paper.
