My ribs are knives

I have chronic rib pain for which I take medication for and a lot of the times it decides to come and go, which generally means that one day I'll be fine and then through the course of the next day, I won't be able to breathe properly. It sucks. Currently, for the last two, three months, it's not popped up or bothered me so I'm hoping this streak continues.

The medication in question is just muscle relaxants, which work amazingly for my ribs. The whole reason for the title and what's in the speech bubble is because it often feels like knives digging into my ribs or at least where my ribs should be, on my back.

Everything is good though!! I'm good so far. The whole thing for the reason I get the pain is probably my posture so.. yeah.

In case you can't read the words in the bubble, they say: Sometimes my ribs want to stop being ribs and instead decide to be knives.

There is actually a full body version of this but I decided that the cropped version where you only see the head and the bubble was much better.
