I wouldn't wish Chikungunya on my worst enemy

The word chikungunya is thought to derive from a description in the Makonde language (Tanzania), meaning "that which bends up" and describes the often contorted position that you find your limbs when afflicted with chikungunya. This is my story of contracting chikungunya and my journey of living life with it.
