Isn’t that… “special”…?

by

Want to know what bewilders me? Of course you don’t, but if you read on I’ll tell you anyway.

It’s this insane trend of “I have a disease! I’m special!”

Some days it seems like almost every woman I know can’t stop talking about her “special” chronic pain condition or autoimmune disease.  On other days I realize it only seems like it’s “almost every woman I know” because the others aren’t continually droning on and on, so they get overlooked.

If these conditions really are this common these days, it seems like a really bad sign for the future of the species. Are there environmental triggers? Are some of these problems of a psychological nature? Is it a sign that human genes are degrading?

It also seems as if the vast majority of these “special” women are single. I’m not sure if there is causation or only correlation evident in that observation. It could be that women with these conditions are too pre-occupied or in too much pain to pursue relationships seriously. Or, that men aren’t interested in women who have these problems. Or, perhaps loneliness can cause (or exacerbate) these conditions.

Of course, it isn’t only women.

All the people who expect the world to orbit around their peanut allergies are part of the same trend. It’s like those who don’t want to see a gun.

It’s this addiction to victimhood which empowers government, and causes (some) people to call upon god/s. It’s almost as if they like to condemn themselves to failure by calling upon something that can’t help them so they won’t lose their specialness. If you solve the problem, where will you find your attention? What happens to your self-worth?
