Recall, I’ve worn it since JUNE.
Also, this has been the autumn of my discontent. I’ve been forever pulled from running or walking for fitness. If a lion gives chase, I’m sure it’s allowed.
Surgeons stabbed my spinal cord a minimum of 24 times (each time, knocking me on my arse for 4 days). I fainted from pain the first time in my life and I’ve had a number of injuries and surgeries. Quelle surprise!
Radiology techs irradiated me enough that I’m afraid to get my teeth xrayed and a little leary over that mammogram. I mean, seriously about 20 times so far?
(Honestly? That wasn’t bad; you could do it to me today–though, I’d rather not…what REALLY SUCKED was…)
I was purposefully electrically shocked 50 times in each arm, for a total of 100 short, sharp shocks. It hurt more than running into an electric fence, which I’ve done many, many times. You may’ve heard I grew up on a working ranch? (for new readers, I say that a lot)
Mum had a heart attack and four days later, quadruple by-pass surgery. This added to my work-load, think nothing of stress. The upside (for me) was it was the catalyst to getting full cardiac studies for heart/ coronary artery disease. I’m pristine because I rock.
Oh, don’t forget the 2-months-plus of what was strep that ended up getting into my blood stream and infecting the blood vessels of my organs, including skin (which showed). That’s life-threatening. I kept working cos I’m mental.
I’m not making excuses.
I’m wondering how much better I can do if this BS leaves me alone!
Here’s to 2013, yo!
