Boredom of Recurrent Illness

I’m a woman who can find herself very easily bored at times. I like to learn, as well as to confront interesting intellectual challenges.

Dealing with the same chronic health problems is terribly routine and mundane. I’ve encountered these same miserable symptoms, over and over again.

I’ve gone through the same diagnostic bronchoscopies, dozens of times. I’ve answered the same pre-surgical questions close to twenty times at this point. I’ve not so patiently waited to obtain relief from my symptoms, multiple times.

Studying medicine has always fascinated me, whereas being a long-term patient has definitely not.
