What's a Medical Unicorn?

After a day of frustration, I vented the following to my friends:
We tell doctors, when you hear hoof beats, think horses not zebras. But when it's not a horse, and it's not a zebra, have a little humility and faith of heart. You just may be hearing a unicorn.

I call myself a Medical Unicorn because I have a disease that, as of 2003, there were only 336 cases known. I was diagnosed in 2008. As such, I use the Unicorn as my profile picture. My purpose here is to take the suffering I've been through and turn it into something good. The unicorn's horn was imbued with certain powers, and one of them was healing. I have been able to experience a great amount of healing by sharing my thoughts with you here.
