That's because on Saturday I had my second heart attack, followed by my second stent. But I'm home now and on this hellacious concoction of toxic pharmacopoeia -- injections made of pig intestinal mucous and pills that give me blinding migraines, sudden drops in body temperature, and dizziness.The up-side, my mood's stabilized. I'm consistently depressed now. And I'm not dead. So yay, science.Always have to look at the bright side.A couple of things...Thank you everyone for everything … [Read More...]
