Actually managed to walk yesterday. 31 minutes, down to the overlook above the water and up to my preferred watering hole for a healthful glass of red wine. Except that one glass of red wine isn’t healthy any more, and is now considered a thing that will kill me. Fuck it. Life without red wine would be awful. And longer while being awful. I remember the story of John LeMesurier being told to stop drinking or it would kill him immediately. After a year, he told his family he just wasn’t happy without a drink. So he started drinking again and lived another ten years or something, entirely healthily by all accounts until he, in his own words, “conked out.”
Today is three days into a medication course I have to take for some opportunistic disease bullshit I picked up at the end of my bout with this year’s Death Flu, and after that it’s time for this year’s round of blood tests, since I remain a Medical Mystery and now I am of an age where I need to be screened for diabetes every now and then. Pity they told me that after I was sick with flu for four weeks and ate cakes because I was miserable. Whoops.
Check out the light over the water yesterday.
