I have been feeling very ill lately. In the last 3 months I have been sick 3 maybe 4 times. That is 3 times too many. I have never and I mean NEVER. Been this sick that many times back to back. I would average 1 major cold a year.

If that.

I went to the doctors office had a consultation, did some blood work and have been given some antibiotics. After filling my prescription and sitting home reading the side effects that’s when it hit me. I was given a prescription a couple of months ago from another doctor and one of the possible side effects was lowers your immune system.

So I remember that I had gotten really sick just before Christmas and as a result I never finished taking the rest of the pills. My body has not been able to fight off a cold since. For the life of me I couldn’t figure out why all of a sudden I kept getting sick. I kept asking myself what changed in the last 5-6 months and I couldn’t put my finger on it. I know it wasn’t from my new relationship (or was it) Hey. Don’t judge me. I’m an addict. Everything crosses my mind and yes even the worse thoughts imaginable don’t seem to far fetched when I stay in that playground too long. Anyway I know better and it was definitely not from my relationship.

It’s funny how you go to get help from the doctor for one problem and the medicine that I am prescribed causes more problems. I am grateful that I finally have some personal closure on the cause. I’m no doctor but with a little deductive reasoning I was able to narrow down the playing field. I am still awaiting blood results and when I go back I will tell the doctors what I’ve discovered.

I have to admit. I was beginning to think that something was seriously wrong and work myself into a addict induced frenzy of despair, doom and gloom. Thank goodness I am out of that darkness..

For now.

  1. Hey Eric. Glad to hear you are doing better emotionally now anyway, and seem to have figured it out. Keep following thru with your Doc though, and remember to tell of all the meds. (At your new age now, you may have to make yourself a note 😀).
    Seriously,take care of yourself Bro, you have too much good going for you now, and you are too valuable to slack off in areas of health. Praying for you Eric. God’s Blessings and Strength.
