This has been a hell of an experience. I normally do not get this sick. It was friggin' depressing. I can't remember the last happy thought I had (except for hearing about carol_kitty's good news). I can't remember the last yiffy thought I had. I want this disease purged from my system as quickly as possible. I want to get back to living life. I want to drink a beer again.
And so yes, this episode has taught me a lesson to, once again, never take my health and well-being for granted. They are truly precious things.
