Hi! My name is Chiarisaurus, but you can call me Zippy. Chiari Malformation basically means that your brain🧠 is too big for your skull💀 and it gets squished. To try to relief symptoms they often do decompression surgery. The surgery leaves a zipper shaped scar on the back of your head. This is why people with Chiari are also called zipperheads. That’s where my nickname comes from 😉.
My favorite color is purple 💜 and I love to eat ice🍦cream. I like to hang out with my friends Pod, Annie and D but sometimes I get really bad headaches and need to take a nap.😴
Even though I can have some pretty bad days because of my Chiari, I still have really good days too. My favorite thing is going see movies at The Viewing 🍿 and then to the Delish Dish to eat ice cream sundaes 🍨 with all my pals. Especially Pod (Migrainopod the Migraine monster). He understands a lot about my headache pain and helps me if I start feeling bad. We always have so much fun! It’s nice to have such good friends.💜
You can sum me up like this:
Represents: Chiari Malformation
Favorite Color: Purple
Special Skill: Can get a severe headache anytime, anywhere
Prone to: Pain, dizziness, weakness, balance problems
