A Quick Introduction
Of all the strange lessons I’ve learned from life with chronic illnesses, one of the stranger ones might be this: always wear nice, clean undies, no matter time of day, no ifs and no buts. This is a result of having to open my legs wide for doctors, nurses, and passed out on surgeons’ tables for examination. You don’t always get the time or have the energy to do a lingerie switch. It was embarrassing to reveal hole ridden, dyed stained underwear in my tweens. Or with kiddy catchphrases like “Girl Power!” scrawled across in flaky gold. Although after a while, you do get used to showing all your private parts to medical staff. Getting showered by a stranger is no big deal either.
I share some embarrassing moments with Britten on “The Essential Life” here. If you’re someone who frequents the ER as well, did you come to the same conclusion as I did?
