The Grim Reaper

Yesterday morning I woke, sat up and felt weak. Very weak. Could hardly move. Felt my forehead. Sweating and clammy.

What the hell. Is this it? Am I kicking the bucket? Having the big one?

All I could do was lay in bed and contemplate the heat index in hell.

Turns out it was nothing. Probably dehydration or a hypoglycemic attack.

Took it easy all day. Drank lots of water and walla…………… stud like body gradually returned.

But, for a portion of the day I must admit to moments of critical concern.

And so it goes. At my age health has become a key issue. Maybe the key.

Every time my internal alarm system goes oops, in that moment, I imagine the worst.

One of the results of my rampant imagination is a real desire to learn more about my health.

Google is an amazing source of information. I’m learning.

Unfortunately, looks like there is a price to pay for the extremes of my youth.

Well that sucks.
