Care for Your Inflictions


Once again, I have to stand in front of you and apologize for missing for the last two days the blogs I write. Although there is no excuse, you do need to know that I have been battling vertigo. I missed Wednesday because I had to go and see a doctor for some help with this ailment.

The doctor gave me some great pills, which did little more than make me dizzier and put me to sleep. I ended up sleeping through yesterday. I’m sure it was there, I just don’t remember much. This is not the doctor’s fault, it is just a side effect of trying to get better.

This is nothing more than a remembrance of what happens as we get older. I really believe the trick is not to age. Unfortunately, the fountains of youth have all dried up. We just need to work hard and overcome these maladies one at a time.

It would be horrendous to pick up a disease and have it live with you for the rest of your life. Frankly, I get too bored too fast and want to move on to something else. If I’m going to have a disease it has to work for me.

I have diabetes, and in treating it, I stay thinner and younger with more energy. The disease makes me get out and exercise, watch what I eat, and as a byproduct, I am out around people more often.

I do not recommend diseases to anyone. However, if you’re going to have one, I recommend working the illness, so it delivers the best for you. If you work it right, you might end up younger, more informed, healthier, and with more energy in the long run.

As for me, I will use the pills as needed, and I will do my best to find methods that help relieve vertigo and help me to improve.

Thank you for being with me today. I really hope to be with you again tomorrow.
