A while ago I was the fortunate recipient of a successful course of chemotherapy. Apart from curing cancer chemo makes you feel just about as ill and uncomfortable as it's possible to feel. Long after my experience a thought came to me; "It made me feel like crap, but at least I didn't die". This, and other observations, then worked their way into the messages on these T-shirts. Some may find them a little questionable, but it's catharsis for me, and I'm sure my sense of humour contributed to the curative power of the personal delusion placebo.
