When you develop a chronic illness (or several), clearly something has gone very wrong in your body. These illnesses are serious and lifelong (hence the term “chronic”), and generally require a great deal of medical attention, management and care – which is to say they should not be taken lightly, or brushed off as “no big deal.”

But when your body behaves in a way that is so off-target, so far from the way a human body is “supposed” to behave, sometimes you can’t help but laugh and wonder, What the hell, body? If your body got its signals crossed somewhere along the line and doesn’t exactly function the way it should, you may relate to the following memes.
