OMFG! You are a child, a baby! Get over it! I am like 25 years older than you, and do you see me whining? Hell no. I drink more than you could even swallow, I take a med that can give me cancer, and I have a husband with heart problems. Plus, I have daughters who married retards. Just wait until your precious babies marry assholes! Then, come whining to me. Damn. Kids don't know when they have it good.

and quit smoking those fucking cigs. seriously.

oh, and PS, when your kids grow up, they will be so close. My little girls were at each other's throats, and now they love each other so much, I am jealous that I never had a sister.

My doctor says I'm fine. He congratulates me on my fine liver score, which I take as a critique of my work.

The rest of my corpus is a little broken here and there, but nothing too bad

As of yesterday:

-197 lbs (down from about 230)
-I can now run a mile without my lungs blowing out despite chain smoking like a boss at all times.
-nearly doubled my lifting capacity in the last 5 months.
-used to have a really bad back . . . . fixed.
-hangovers whereas are frequent are usually tolerable.

I'd say I'm not doing too badly despite the massive boozeing and smoking and job stress. Only a few silver hairs popping in, but they're difficult to see.

drink well, eat well, fuck well. The rest follows.

Crunching blood pressure medication for 1 1/2 week now and I can't remember when I last felt this normal. After living for years feeling bad, bad kind of gets the new norm and bad is OK and worse is bad.

I feel like a million dollar. Better than I have for years and years and...

I've had restless legs in the evening that has been killing me. Gone!
I've had trouble sleeping. No more!
I've felt gloomy and sort of depressed. Nada!
I've been soooooo tired. Not anymore!
I've been blaming the pressure over my chest on my being depressed and stressed. Gone!
I've had a hard time getting air, which I've blamed on being in bad shape and I've been sweating a lot. Not anymore. Actually turns out I'm in pretty good shape. I guess forcing myself to take all those walks has payed off without my knowing it.

Oh so many things in my life that has been a pain in the ass and they all went away over night after getting blood pressure medication.

The only problem is that 1 pill doesn't last 24 hours so I can have some problems in the morning. Being hungover accentuates the different between feeling AWESOME in the day and TERRIBLE in the morning. In the past the difference was barely noticeable, feeling like shit, drink made it better and then morning was back to regular shit.

Oh well.

Big drinking weekend coming up, midsummer's eve is a good one. Cheers!

High blood pressure... medication solved it
irregular heart beats... medication solved it
borderline diabetes... well, medication solved it

I'm 46, I don't smoke, but I am a heavy drinker, but I feel fine. I believe in pills to cure you or at least protect you from cardiac problems. I'm all for medical science, yes I'm a nerd.

Two of the greatest lines I've read together in several years. Well done, sir. Cheers.
