    Confessing The Blues ..........

    I have COPD.

    There, you all heard my confession before even the Priest got an earful!

    All those years of Smoking and that misspent youth finally caught up with me. It was discovered after I had fallen foul of a rather nasty lung infection. Whatever, it is a self inflicted injury, and one I am now learning to live with. My oxygen capacity is still pretty high, so I don't have it as bad as many sufferers do. The reason I've not been here much is because frankly the medication made me feel way sicker than the COPD. I'm off most of the meds now, and feel a lot more like my old self.

    To quote Ned Kelly; "Such is life."

    No sympathy is required, needed or wanted.

    Just thank Toxic for taking care of me. I do, seven days a week ......................................

    Sorry to hear that Jag but at least you are on the mend with a good woman to look after you.

    I can sympathize with you, I don't have it now but I'll probably have it worse later on in life.
    I can't have smoked as much as I did and not have effects during my senior years,
    and I do imbibe a bit of the wacky tabacky almost daily so there's that too.
    My HEVC/H.265/x265 videos can be played with either VLC or MPC-HC



    Do your demons, do they ever let you go..?
    When you've tried, do they hide, deep inside..?
    Is it someone that you know..?

    Oh hell, the latter is probably doing you more good than harm.

    I wanted to use some with my meds, but needless to say my Doctor was not impressed, either with my suggestion or my warped sense of humour.

    Me too Frosty, I was a heavy smoker for a lot of years. There is always a price for dangerous pleasures I suppose.

    He's had it rough for a long time now, but I'm determined he's going to get better, if it kills me!
    Three and a half years ago, he was diagnoised, it gets worse as the weeks, months, and years roll on by.

    But he's stubborn, and that's a big plus right now. All those medications they've had him on left him weak, and really kicked him for a while.

    I told him today that he should get back here where he's missed, being in good company is essential. And there's no better company than you guys.

    A Scotsman being stubborn..? There's a first time for everything I guess.

    A Scotsman? I think not .......................................

    I'm an ENGLISHMAN through and through.

    Not that being so will stand up to scrutiny. After all, there is bound to be some Roman in there, and in my case a large helping of Viking. I was born with a flaxen mane, platinum blond. At the age of six brown streaks started to appear and by the age of nine it turned black. So there I was, black hair but very fair complexion. When I first got sick one of our neighbours referred to me as; "The Vampire." Never did like that woman ...............................

    If I go by my direct bloodline then I am 50% English, 25% Irish and 25% Scottish.

    Fuck that, I'll stick to being mainly Viking ...............................

    My apologies. I must have looked at your stubbornness and assumed you were a Scotsman.

    Trust me, Buddy, she is working way harder than I am.

    Maybe a little perspective will go a long way here, after all, I already have the "Westers" praying for me!

    My lungs are 92% efficient, which is very high for COPD. I'm not on oxygen, and since this whole thing started not one whiff of the precious stuff. I have an asthmatic inhaler but that's it for the breathing end of things. The problem for me was that I picked up two lousy infections, both nasty without COPD, with it the first bloody near killed me, and the second made me as sick as anyone ever wants to be. Just bad luck. Due to this I had meds up to the wazoo. Truth is the meds did most damage, sure they killed off the infection, but they killed off everything that was good too. I had so much antibiotic lying around that I looked like some half crazed dealer!

    Slowly but surely my strength is coming back, but my confidence took a beating, and being a gregarious bugger I'm going to have to work on that. Getting back into music has been very good therapy. The doctors don't have to check on me often, in fact I have an emergency supply of drugs to treat myself if I have any more infections flare up.

    So, it's not all bad, children.

    There are plenty of people out there that need our prayers, but I'm not really one of them.

    I thank you all kindly for the concern though, much appreciated.
