Once upon a time, my sister Owl used to blog, so if I needed to share an update about her, I could just link her post. However, it’s been a while since she has, and I think her blog may no longer be public access, so I just have to update here.
Owlie-bird has a brain aneurysm.
I know, I had the same reaction. I was like “How rude! Being the sickie is my job!” We’ve always been competitive, and now she’s just upped the game on me.
She’s copying me, I just know it. She’s been mimicking most of the same weird symptoms and ailments I’ve had over the years- I have scoliosis, she has scoliosis. I have fibromyalgia, she has fibromyalgia- and it’s quite likely that she’ll also receive a diagnosis for the same set of syndromes that I’ve got as well- POTS and Ehlers Danlos.
The brain aneurysm may be linked to vascular-type Ehlers Danlos sydrome, and although I’m tempted to try to take my title of Reigning Sickie back, I have no intention of developing an aneurysm for it. Sudden death isn’t my style. I’m more of the slow & steady tortoise type, and here she is being all impetuous hare.
She’s weighing surgical intervention options, and duas are greatly appreciated.
Who knows, maybe we’re racing for Jannah. May the best sickie win.
