10 Reasons Why I am a Dalek: When It Comes To Chronic Illness It’s The Doctor Who Knows Best

When you suffer from a chronic illness or disability, it is essential to possess a sense of humour.  It makes everything easier, less heavy, less serious, even if the issues themselves are just that.  Heck, if you can’t have a good chuckle about incontinence pads then what is the point?  To that end, here is my homage to my particular set of circumstances, even though I don’t think that Daleks don’t really know what incontinence knickers look like. Ten reasons why my diagnosis should in fact be, Dalek.

  1. I can’t go up stairs (I’m an old Dalek, not the new flying ones)
  2. I have been known to wield a plunger in a terrifying manner
  3. I regularly chase The Doctor
  4. There are many things I would like to ‘Exterminate’
  5. The Doctor often runs away when he sees me coming
  6. I repeat myself alot
  7. I have a very fixed agenda and chase people till they listen, or go up some stairs
  8. I often visit The Doctor at very inconvenient times
  9. Many small children are afraid of me
  10. People often point and or/stare when they see me coming

There you have it.  I do believe this points cannot be disputed at any level.

If you were a fictional character, what would it be any why?  

If you do have a chronic illness, what would your superhero name be?

What things make you giggle like nothing else?
