Bringing to you the world’s most uncomfortable superhero duo!
I did this as a present for my friend Jen (Medical Mystery Girl) as she just found out that she’ll have to do another round of “guess the illness”, which they are speculating may be Lupus-related Rheumatoid Arthritis. I went through the same tests four years ago and was diagnosed with RA, only to be told three year later that they think it may have been Fibromyalgia all along.
So, here we are as a crime-fighting duo. I assume we go around slapping Doctors who give misdiagnoses on account of laziness. 
(Captain Chronic Pain has been bedridden with a backache today, so Medical Mystery Girl might be on her own for now. First time doing digital colouring, still practicing character work!)
Be a hero, don’t let the pain keep you down.

Here are some basics on herd immunity, and here is some more technical research if you’re interested in the details! 

If you’ve ever heard my rants about vaccination, you know it’s a major topic with me. Because hey, I’m one of these immunosuppressed people this comic talks about, so it’s a bit of a sensitive subject. (“Oh, I’m sorry, you don’t like getting vaccinated? I don’t like having three month long respiratory infections because you gave me the freaking flu, but I guess you don’t care about that”)

Essentially, Ellen and her wonderful character Katherine have just said it better than I ever could—and using Shaun of the Dead references, too!!! It’s all about herd immunity—getting vaccinated isn’t just about your own health, it’s about the health—and non-zombification—of the entire human race.

SO REBLOG THIS!! LIKE THIS!!! SPREAD IT LIKE WILDFIRE!!!!!

How is it possible to have a suppressed immune system to the point of not being able to fight off well…. anything on your own, but still have your immune system working enough to try and kill you?

calculating how many pills you should have left and then counting them all out because you can’t remember whether you’ve already taken your dose or not
