Isn’t it insidious how quickly medicine becomes part of your identity, that once you remove it from the equation, you’re left bereft of all meaning?

I like summer, the colour orange, Apple products and Chinese hot pot. I’ve ditched the piano for violin this year. One day I want to learn to play the viola. I went to Paris without visiting the Eiffel Tower. A Louvre guard tried to seduce me and directed me to a dead end when I asked for the exit. It’s been four years since I’ve written something meaningful. My favourite book in the world is Anne of Green Gables. I don’t like broccoli or mushrooms. I’ve been salivating after a DSLR for years now even though I don’t know a thing about poetry. I’ve never waken up before noon voluntarily. I’m a terrible swimmer despite taking lessons for years. I believe that we can all be more than the sum of our parts. I also believe in the indomitable human spirit.
