The results of my MRI are in:
I have a completely unremarkable brain. Or at least the exam was unremarkable.
This is good, of course, and I am relieved. Though some of my health issues are still mysteries… It’s the language they use that amuses me—unremarkable. It sort of sticks in me. A sore spot in my, I guess, unremarkable subconscious.
I need a boost of self-esteem because the truth is, most days, I do feel pretty unremarkable. The lab results know me more than they should. You know how some people just have this confidence, so enormous it’s almost blinding? I wonder where they get it. I can’t imagine going through life thinking I’m remarkable and just waiting for people to recognize it. That must be nice.
My current theory is to just keep on working really, really hard and hope there’s some recognition in that.
