Reply To: Jokes on my illness

This joke doesn’t have to do with my CIDP, but it’s something I’ve enjoyed saying, and REALLY enjoyed watching peoples reactions, for about 20 years. Several years ago I had a Melanoma removed from my left upper chest, 3″ or so below the collar bone. It left a 2-1/2″ long x 1/2″ wide scar. When people have seen me shirtless, and have asked, I don’t go with the boring, Melanoma story. Instead I go for the heroic, tough guy approach…..”That? Awww, I got that in a bar fight”. Love to watch their faces when I add, “you shoulda seen the other guy”.
