I actually wrote this one like five years ago but this seemed like an appropriate time to use it
Man cancer is super in vogue this year, all the cool kids are getting it. And I guess that must mean I got invited to sit at the cool kid lunch table because the doctor’s pretty sure I have it too! At least as sure as he can be without physically going in and cutting pieces out.
Plus side, it’s pretty low-key 99.7% survivable thyroid cancer so if you gotta spin that cancer roulette wheel it’s basically like winning a jackpot. And I’ll get a cool Kurgan neck scar out of it, which I feel would massively compliment my aesthetic.
Minus side is I gotta take drugs to replace my thyroid for the rest of my life and get to live with hypo/perthyroidism until they get all the medication levels sorted out which is NOT GOING TO BE FUN while I’m also in the middle of working a full-time job and planning a wedding (and drawing all these webcomics what I do) So I will pre-emptively say, if you’re wondering why MGDMT is kind of janky or not in colour or whatever happens to be wrong with it that week, it’s probably because I have cancer.
That aside, I also got hammered with a super bad cold this weekend that completely knocked me out of commission, which, if you ask me, is completely not fair to get knocked out by a head cold the same week you get diagnosed with thyroid cancer.
Ah well, C’est la vie.
