  • In the many years leading up to my diagnosis, I was plagued by a certain insanity -- I kept living through events that my previous reality stated I -- nor any person -- should. Reality became surreality, and my diagnosis brought the relief of affirmation of this. Getting better was never an option; getting worse was my slated fate. Years into the deep of that knowledge I have found an unanticipated new lease. Now I have lost nearly 100lbs and might become a yoga instructor. Middle-fucking-finger, incurable brain disease.
