Why Tube Girl?

When I received a nasogastric feeding tube in December 2008 for supplemental night time feedings due to multiple food intolerances and digestive issues my fiance and I came up with the stories of "Tube Girl" - my superwoman alter ego who saves the world from starvation. Whenever I was having a hard time being stared at in public my fiance would tell me stories about Tube Girl's super powers and her adventures. He even invented a secret identity for himself - "CC" aka "Calorie Counter" - Tube Girl's faithful right hand in her fight against starvation.
After six long months of ng tube feeding I received a g-tube almost three weeks ago and therefore continue to be a tube girl.
