    So in combination with some shit I do at ren faire which essentially amounts to pushups

    I have had a wicked fucking terrible cough

    Just a violent damn cough

    And as a result of this, my abdominal muscles are in enough pain that it hurts to breath deeply

    And they're constantly tense and twitchy

    And because I'm still sick, my breath rate and heart rate are accelerated so this sort of shit is happening often

    Also there's the whole spitting out a gallon of mucus a day, but that is paltry compared to the abs thing

    I got a story for you, Pony.

    About four and a half years ago I started having problem upon problem over the span of a month or two:

    I was having weak spells, I was constantly dehydrated and having to go to the bathroom way too much, and my eyesight started going bad. I started to feel shitty, like I was coming down wtih a bug or something, and found that I couldn't stomache much at once or I'd vomit it up. Then, really early one morning, I woke up with a nasty pain in my left side (I think it was left, anyway) that kicked in if I took more than shallow breaths.

    I finally had the sense to get some help, and called 911. The paramedics asked some questions and looked me over, then brought me to the hospital where I was told I was diabetic. At the time of my arrival I had a blood sugar of around 950. That's roughly the average glucose level of 10 people. Apparenetly someone with blood sugar that high should be in a diabetic coma at that point.

    Evidently my pancreas crapped out on me, and so I've been insulin dependant ever since.

    Also this thread reminded me

    Earlier today I was trying to think of the disease that frightened me the absolute most

    It doesn't have to be deadly, it can even be curable, it's just gotta scare the shit out of you

    For me I am pretty sure it is either rabies or senility

    yeah, pretty terrifying for me as well. Losing a hand/s is up there, too. Almost everything I love to do requires hand use. Writing, drawing, guitar, painting, ect...

    After my surgery I was still getting over a nasty cold. Horrible coughing with a freshly stitched up groin/mesh sewn in under the skin. Thank god for the painkillers

    My blood sugar is apparently a little more jumpy than usual. it goes down pretty quickly but it can go up just as fast, so I have to pay attention to my insulin whenever I'm eating.

    I honestly don't mind the shots, it's just annoying having to find different places to do the injections because the skin toughens up and starts to bruise if I use the same general area too frequently.
