A week ago, I had surgery to implant a permacath into my chest. A surgeon made a tiny incision and carefully inserted it into my jugular vein.
I have Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP). It’s an autoimmune disease that attacks my peripheral sensory nerves. In so many ways, it has upended my life.
Yet… I am thankful for the lessons I have learned only because I have CIDP. I wanted to share a few here.
