This is not a pity post…

7 Oct

…dang it, I am going to have a mini pity party for myself.

So, this morning after putting up my “American Mindset” post, I felt a little whoozy and tired.  I drank a redbull to help perk me up but I felt even worse so I took a short walk.  By the time I got back to the office, I had chest pains and difficulty breathing.  My co-workers panicked and took me the the nearby clinic.  It so happens that I accidentally overdosed on my morning medication and the redbull accelerated the side effects.

The nurse gave me bottled water and told me to go eat a snack.  I felt better after a couple of hours.

Firstly, I find it just depressing that I will always be in poor health because of my Neuropathic pain.  I will always be on some pain medication and will have to be careful with dosage.

Secondly, I think it is so unfair that I work hard to be fit and still have to battle pain on a daily basis.  I almost want to give up and just get fat and lazy.

Okay, I’m done.  I off to take another walk since this whole episode has ruined my 3-mile run.
