Here at PatientWorthy, we think laughter can be the best medicine. Ironic humor is sorta our thing. But to those easily offended, or perhaps even moderately intolerant, we suggest you skip this article. The thin-skinned have been forewarned.
Everyone deserves their own theme song–especially those with a chronic illness, disease, or syndrome. After much deliberation, we’ve paired each of the below diseases with its very own theme song, which will do one of three things: 1) make you laugh, 2) provide encouragement, or 3) offend you.
But, we’ve washed our hands of that by warning you, remember? If you’re still reading, any offense taken is on you.
