There's A Tumour In My Brain, But It's Dead (The Tumour, Not The Brain)

I made this GIF from the slices of a recent CT scan of my head. The small white dot in the green circle is a tumour in my pineal gland. Fortunately, it's now calcified and requires no intervention — it stopped growing the same way it started*. I just thought it would be cool to share it here for two reasons:

One, because the cliché is true: to be alive and healthy is amazing. Shit can be falling everywhere around you, but the mere fact of being alive is reason enough to be happy. At least for me. This is a good reminder that you should really enjoy it while it lasts, because it ends really fast when things are normal — and can end very suddenly when things go wrong.

Two, because I love to have a GIF of my brain. I keep it around to remind me that I'm a lucky bastard and I shouldn't waste my time.

* Doctor said that it will not grow each of the five hundred and 20 seven times I asked about it after he said to me "Well, you have a tumour in your brain [pause] but don't worry, it's calcified."
