Adam and JCD are discussing John King having MS and not knowing why it makes him immunocompromised. The first line treatment for that, and a ton of autoimmune disease is steroids. They put you on MASSIVE doses, 100mg or more. That destroys your immune system.
I had a cat scratch my leg on July 4 and it didn’t heal until after Christmas.
Steroids fuck you up in horrible ways.
Stay off of them!!
Dialysis Training, Day 3
I’ve learned how to fill/drain myself. I’m supposed to do it solo at home tonight. The only worry I have is infection. They’ve literally put the fear of God in me with all the sanitizing I have to do. I HAVE to mask up anytime I’m going in. My dog can’t be in the room, I have to shut the air vents. It’s a 20 step process and if I deviate a lady slaps my hand😂
Next week I learn how to use the machine and I won’t have to do it myself.
I wouldn’t function well as a wealthy dude. I fed my kids hotdogs and boloney sandwiches.
This same school has kids showing up for lunch with pre-made Bento boxes. 1 kid last year showed up with one and by the end of the week they all had one. Except for the poor apartment kids that live next door😐
There are some things I can easily imagine/fantasize. I’ve always been middlish class, so I cannot imagine most of the finer things in life. Like picking my children up in a golf cart in my multi million dollar neighborhood.
My beloved wife is the assistant principal at the most affluent district in central Oklahoma. Yesterday she rode the bus with a crew of extremely naughty kids. Her jaw dropped when they pulled into the $million neighborhood. The jaw picked up and fell again when ALL of the kids were picked up by their mothers riding golf carts. I couldn’t stop laughing when she told me.
There was a time when 1 rich gal did that and ALL of the mothers had to copy it.
That’s the scene I want to witness.
Not sure what happened to me video😐
Here’s the draining bag. Watch at your peril. Like it’s gross or something🙄
