At the end of April I read an article about fashionable diseases. The author is a literature critic – not a medical journalist, but does get paid to write a useless column like that.
I am sick of being judged or ridiculed by my involuntary situation as if her illness is nothing but an accessory.
After my initial fuming subsided, the story ’If only… If only I had a fashionable disease’ popped into my head. It describes a fictional fashionista desperately trying to find a proper, fashionable illness.
I am so happy it is part of the online magazine The Haven! Pop over there to read the story, following this link. Thanks, Fleur
