Quoted from JayDee:
I love these
I wish I could still love them.
I miss almonds, cashews, peanuts, and actually even salad.
If I go to a restaurant now, I have to try to substitute a salad for something else.
Oh, and make sure there are no seeds on a burger bun.
The last thing that was about to kill me was vitamins.
Now that I take vitamin gummies, and stay away from a lot foods that I really miss, I feel better than I have in decades.
Pretty sure the OP also knows what I am talking about.
Most people will be fine, but as we get older, I confess I have learned some foods do just not digest well, and will give you a whole lot of pain until you change your diet a little.
And hell no, I am not some health nut, and I hope I can always have meat for every meal.
But even if you are vegetarian, you may want to avoid corn also.
I never cared anything about tea, but I know people that was having a lot of kidney stone issues, and the doctor told them to drop tea, and drink at least a 6 pack of beer a day.
^^^ And I am serious about all of that^^^
(now I am goofing off)
All I know is someday we will all die.
Death is the #1 killer, and so far no cure for death in sight.
Confess at times, when I was actually not even feeling that bad, I have said "somebody kill me please".
(now serious again)
Confess at times when I was feeling very bad, I was saying "please help me get better, I do not want to die".
Thursday, some pain hit me that I have not had in a long time, but I have had it before.
I thought I was having a major heart attack, I was in very bad chest pain, and sweating bullets.
And just like the few times in the past this has happened, I drank a half bottle of Pepto Bismo, and I was fine after a few minutes.
There have been times also that the pain was a tad different, and still felt like may be a heart attack, and a pain relief roll on or spray for muscle pain took care of that.
I hope none of you ever have to deal with some of the pains I have sometimes.
The picture of the nuts reminded me how much I would love to enjoy some foods again, but I can never again.
Confess that while I have been self employed most of my life, I have also paid for my own health insurance my whole life.
And I rarely ever go to a doctor, and when I do it is for stuff like a chain saw cut that I need stitches for, or like the last time when I was having very bad ear pain, that was just something weird, and after a while they was able to get me what I needed.
Confess I probably self diagnose a tad much, but here is where I get some of that from:
Long ago a good friend of mine thought he was having a heart attack, he went to the hospital, 80 grand later turns out he had severe heartburn.
Long ago my Mom thought she was having a heart attack, went to the hospital(never heard the amount of that), but anyway it was muscle pull.
Most of the worst pains I ever have are chest pains, and sometimes I think I need to go to the hospital, but so far either Pepto Bismo, or the pain relief spray or roll on has made me better in 5 minutes, and I know no way that stuff would fix a heart attack.
So I do not have to spend a whole lot of money even with insurance, with all that hospital stuff, as long as the over the counter stuff still works.
And I have no clue how a actual heart attack could even feel any worse than some of the chest pain that I have had.
Anyway, my girlfriend is trying to get me to see a doctor, I am having a bad problem with my right foot now, and long ago I was diagnosed with low sugar, and she thinks I need the foot and sugar checked.
Confess I think I will be fine.
I have had the low sugar thing for over 35 years now, and I know what I can and can not do, and what I need to do if I feel a tad too funky.
The foot thing is new though, so yeah, if it keeps hurting or gets worse I will go see a doc.
Confess I hope to be here for a long time driving some of you nuts with my long posts.
Confess I hope to be more funny, and not so serious.
But this week kind of kicked my ass.
I do feel a lot better at the moment.
If anything happens to me, I am all good, I have had a awesome life.
(trying to be funny again now),
I am so glad that scientists and doctors are working so hard to come up with cancer cures, and other stuff like that.
But they really need to focus on a cure for death. Death still kills more people than all other things combined.
And I confess I hate it when the Funny Captions gets derailed, and just talking, and no funny caption stuff to look at when I see 5 new posts there.
But at the same time I love how everything here just just goes all over the place so much.
Confess that I was surprised that we did not talk about boogers for long at all though.
(and sorry to bring that up, I hope we are done with booger talk).
(gas and belch talk is more entertaining).
Confess while ago on the lake night fishing a boat anchored near me and my girlfriend, and when I would make some of that noise she would be like shh, they may hear you, and I said I don't give a crap, I was here first.
I hope all of you have a AWESOME WEEKEND!
