The way my health has worsened is very vaguely related to CP. I've been having problems with my back for the last six years, have to wear a support corset to sit without having pain. That wasn't there during my golden years of Babble. But as long as it's on, it's no more of a nuisance than glasses (which I don't wear).
I also remind myself of that guy from Ghost World, that's a bonus.
