You got me so wrong.
I never asked to be in such pain I’d have to retire young.
Had never even heard of chiari malformation. And it’s list of possible symptoms.
I didn’t think I would have so many and end u having nearly them all.
And what kind of stupidity would sign consent to have my brain opened – really opened – dura and all for an operation which may help prevent this disease progression.
People assume brain surgery would only be to remove something a cure. But it was never promised. And it didn’t make me better. Or stop my condition degeneration
Nor did I think that I was going to gain brain damage. –
Acquired brain injuries you call the events :
The main surgery- 8 hours of it
The shunt insertion.
And 4 years later more meningitis.
Do I use a wheelchair by fashion choice?
Do I choose the weight I am to my family.
My life is hard.
But I don’t fit the description of me you gave. Subtracting my conditions and removing the core of me.
You have a conscience.
I know that will be judged. Eventually. Remember me then.
