Recovery and Me, We Don't Get Along

This isn't what you think from reading the title. I like to switch things around sometimes. Recovery is about me.

I haven't been keeping up on blogs much last week. I just got home from my second trip to the doctor in 4 days. After x-rays and everything else he confirmed it, pneumonia. Now he tells me I need to take it easy. He told me that pneumonia is nothing to mess around with. I ask him if he had told pneumonia I was nothing to mess around with. He said I need to take it easy. So now I am stuck trying to recover from this crap for a couple weeks. It's a good thing I was never an addict, 30 days of rehab and recovery, I'd have killed somebody by that time. Taking it easy and not doing much does not fit me very well at all.

I'll try to keep up on my reading blogs but comments my be sketchy. No one should be required to endure comments from a person that is making every effort he can to OD on any antibiotics that I can find. (pssst, whispering) Anybody got a street connection for antibiotics, cough syrup and oxygen?   LOL

I won't judge you based on my experience of having a sick man in the house! Heed the doc's advice! Mom and everyone else needs for you to be well.

Admit it. Men are babies when they get sick. Listen to your doctor, and your body. Pneumonia is nothing to take lightly. Go in to your cave, and go easy on Mom. Be well.

Ron, here's hoping that you feel better. Reading, chicken soup, antibiotics, and rest--sounds good to me. But I know that you are a hard man to keep down. Take care of yourself.

Follow doctors orders Ron or you won't feel better! LOL! Read, watch some DVD's, search the web, and nap! Take care

Ron - I hope you feel better soon!
The holidays are right around the corner and I bet you are feeling pressure to get better. Pay attention to Dr's orders and watch some mindless TV or something.
