Disabled Chronicles, No. 589

“They looks like railroad tracks in there!” The heavily accented Hispanic X-ray tech expressed this with a mixture of shock and something that echoed the sentiments of pobrecita. “I know right?!” I answered back with a half smirk on my lips and equal sentiments of How Cool and How Utterly Badass Is That? I don’t think he was ready for my response, because his bushy eyebrows shot up, then crunched down as he adjusted my arms and ensured that my

Apparently I did have a migraine last week? I
