I recently bought a t-shirt to help raise Chiari awareness. Needless to say, I am getting all kinds of reactions. Most people laugh ~ how clever, they say. But, seriously, who wears something like that? A bragging brainiac? A nerdlette? I am thinking that maybe I should put on the back "TRUE STORY!"
I wish it was a laughing matter ~ my brain is 2 big 4 my head so I get to have surgery to make more room for it ~ let's call it brain renovation ~ awesome ~ can't wait... I am hoping that despite my twisted humor I will do my part to help educate the general public on Chiari Malformations. Education is half the battle. Thousands of people are walking around out there who have unexplained dizziness, brain fog, headaches and all kinds of other symptoms. My hope is that I will shine the light for someone who has been searching for years for a diagnosis.
