Chronic Illness & Nanites

When your brain is only partially working, your right hand curls up into a numb but painful claw, muscles all over your body misfire, and you feel like you've run a marathon just from waking up, you know it's a bad day. Today is just that kind of day.


I am lucky though. On most days, I can resemble fine. I can fake it, and even sometimes believe it, because of the modern miracle called pharmacology.


My illness is one of the reasons I write about nanites (microscopic machines that can float around your body to heal any number of illnesses). Makes sense, right? In my fantasies, "The Treatment" as I call it, would fix me up. But like everything, there are pros and cons of everyone being healthy.
