Day + 9 Health Score 49
I feel great, never felt better in my life. Sorry, I shouldn't use sarcasm here. In "The Princess Bride" they put the Dread Pirate Roberts on a machine that sucked 1 year of life out of his body.
This happened to me two weeks ago, only with this machine, they promise to give the life back to you when you need it most, that is when you are mostly dead. Of course, it takes time for it to work and it is not chocolate coated.
Today I feel very weak. I have a GI bleed (gut), and massive swelling. It takes all the effort and motivation I can muster just to get out of bed. I haven't eaten in days. But you needn't worry about me. I will get better. I am quite tenacious. I may be only half-way up the cliffs of insanity, but I have a clear view of the top.
This I know. I derive extreme comfort in the hundreds of gestures of support given to me and my family. But, above all, I could not survive this without Barbie. For she is the reason that I continue on this path, for Barbie, my Princess Bride.
