Sorry I've been gone... I'm in the hospital, trying to keep the puking down to three times a day. I promise I'll be in touch soon. And Exp, I'll be trading you a better Saturn case.

So sorry everyone. I finally got my PSP delivered, is how I'm posting.

Sick is a nice word. There's some sort of fluid building up around my heart and phlegm is pouring out of my nose and mouth.

I think they have the facts about nailed down, but the cure keeps getting delayed. Basically it's time to radiate my thyroid whether I like it or not.

There's been a huge buildup of fluid around my heart and a passing virus is playing hell with that. I'm having a bitch of a time breathing without expectorants because there's constant slow-rising phlegm blocking my throat.

Woah. This is one of those times where in real life I'd stare at the ground, hunt for words, and fail, and try and convey a glance of "God mate, I hope you're alright..."

Which of cause you will be. :)

Did I say they were going to radiate my neck? Now that'd be odd. They are going to irradiate it, apparently tomorrow. Should have done this years ago.

Thanks, but this actually won't be as bad as chemotherapy.

I know someone who had that done and they ended up removing her thyroid completely. She said the irradiation wasn't as bad as when they first started to take bits out of it. Going from hyper to hypo can be one hell of a swing, I hope they get you just right and that you'll feel normal after all of this. I'll be thinking of you.

I hope not mate. And genuinely, I hope they sort something out for you. My sister suffered from an under-active thyroid, and that created all sorts of problems, so I sort of understand. I just hope it gets sorted out for you.

Yeah, you just end up taking an artificial supply everyday. I have all of mine in tact but still have to take pills. It sucks because if I forget not only do I feel like crap but then if I miss a few of them I get angry enough that I don't want to take any pills at all. And you can guess where that goes from there.

Super happy fun times.

I'm out of the hospital, but still coughing up a storm. We'll see how this goes. I was in there SIX DAYS.

After six days, I owe over $53,000.

You know, about a third of a house.

And "Obamacara" is going to ruin us, huh? Bring on the socialism, you fat pricks! And thank god I lied about my social security number when I was checked in.

So Obama suggested a British NHS style healthcare and huge portions of the USA population went nuts suggesting it was the slide towards communism because...

a. They like paying silly money to be sick?
b. They are never sick?
c. They are as stupid as they make out?
d. They are all medical doctors and not even slightly stupid?
e. They genuinely believe that providing a basic state funded healthcare system that's available to all, will resurrect Stalin and put him in the White House faster than you can say Wolverines because that's exactly what happened in the UK? No... Wait...
f. Other
