Health News —
I lost pretty much all of the past 7 days because of allergies. No really, they slammed me. Bedridden most of the time. Breathing problems got so bad, I went to a doctor Tuesday morning and started a couple of prescription meds. They immediately made me so sick, I couldn't stand it. By late Wednesday, before even two full days of the stuff, I stopped them. Don't ever take Methylprednisolone (Prednisone)! Seriously! I can't believe how bad the side-effects were. My lungs opened up, sure, but I had to pay for it with extreme weakness, sore muscles (especially legs), BAD stomach pain, and for some reason, it attacked my hip joints. I couldn't walk! It turned me into a geriatric! WTF??

So that shit's gone! I've always avoided medications. They either don't do anything at all or they try to kill me. But there are millions of people out there taking this shit every day. Are they having the same side-effects but just keep taking the pills?? They MUST be! No wonder we're so fucked up!

I stopped the pills last night and felt better almost immediately. And had a decent meal, which I couldn't while I was hurting so bad. I feel almost normal this morning, and I'm breathing okay. So I'll draw today, but I missed a whole week of live art, so I'm behind on money. (See the next post for a new threesome deal.)
