When you’re in relatively good health, it’s easy to take things for granted. Now that I’m half-sedated with meds and buried in a mountain of tissue, I’m trying to fight back the compulsiveness to overdo things. There’ll be plenty of time for that when my body’s prepared to take the punishment. 🙂
Hindsight, twenty-twenty, etc…I should have seen a week (or two) like this coming where I’m simply unproductive. I’ve tried to work on my story, but I don’t care what anyone tells you–hacking up phlegm every thirty seconds in a Benadryl-induced haze does not make for good writing.
I’ll see you guys soon, I promise, and with an avalanche of stories to boot.
