Dear CIDP, a letter to my illness

Dear CIDP, Usually, when I think about what I would say to you if you were a person, it usually involves some anger-fueled profanity. But today, it is with gratitude that I think of you.

 "you probably think that I hold resentment for you
But uh uh, oh no, you're wrong
 'Cause if it wasn't for all that you tried to do,
 I wouldn't know Just how capable I am to pull through
So I wanna say thank you
'Cause it:
 Makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter"
(Yes, I know this is Christina Aguilera, but we have lots of stuff in common.)
