WHAT IT IS LIKE TO HAVE MALARIA 7 TIMES

I can't remember if it was 7 times or 11... It all happened before I was 10 years old. 7 feels more likely.
  1. People think I have super powers
    And let's face it I sort of do
  2. I know a lot about blood born viruses
    Ask me anything... I'm 50% sure I'll be at least 35% accurate 100% of the time
  3. The flu seems like a walk in the park
    And I still don't believe people actually die from the flu
  4. It's a fantastic conversation starter
    People seem so interested... I'm looking at you Tramer
  5. You're not allowed to donate blood
    Which, as a member of the universal blood type I constantly feel guilty about.
  6. I blame all my failings on the fact I survived Malaria
    - I'm a terrible speller-- Malaria - I hate working out-- Malaria - My hair is 90% grey at the ripe old age of 30-- Malaria - I hate commitment-- Malaria - I love raw Brussels sprouts-- Malaria - I hate making decisions-- Malaria - My terrible sense of spatial awareness-- Malaria Note: this may or may not be fact
