I went to the doctors on Friday for bloodwork (liver enzymes and such). I'd had a cough for a few days, but I chalked it up to smokers cough, seeing as though I felt (bodily) fine. I walked out of the office with a script for prednisone, 2 inhalers, antibiotics, and cough meds. Seems like I have pneumonia! Now please let me add that I've had pneumonia SEVERAL times when I was using drugs years ago. Not so often when it was alcohol by itself. I came home with all of the meds, was okay on Saturday, then couldn't get up from the couch ALL DAY yesterday and this morning. I am sick sick sick. I feel terrible, with body aches, and hot/cold sweats, my chest feels like its on FIRE!, I am just so friggen miserable, I can't even stand MYSELF, never mind anyone else. I have not had an alcoholic drink in 15 months, this is the first time I've had so much as a cold!, I don't know how to handle it. I feel like such a big baby. I also got incredibly BAD and unexpected results for one of the blood tests,(not relating to the liver), I'm not ready to share - as much as I NEED to so badly. Maybe later though. Please feel free to yell at me for having so much self-pity right now. Others have like, REAL problems, and I'm boo-hooing because I'm sick!!!! Thanks for letting me vent! Mich

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
