i had a cold last week. It was strange because i felt it coming on, so i bought a box of medicine that contained a 5-day treatment and at the end of the 5 days, i felt better. Very strange, indeed.
Because when i was drinking and i had a cold i would self-medicate with booze and that would make me sicker and i would procrastinate buying medicine until i was so sick that the medicine wouldn’t really work and i would feel like crap for at least 2 weeks.
i’m still sick, but i’m getting better. i’m sick with alcoholism, but i’m seeing some specialists about it.
i will die with my disease, but i will not die from it.
