Life can certainly be tough at times…

I had the toughest time of my life. First, I got angina pectoris, and then arteriosclerosis.

Just as I was recovering from these, I got tuberculosis, double pneumonia and phthisis, then they gave me hypodermics.

Appendicitis was followed by tonsillectomy.

These gave way to aphasia and hypertrophic cirrhosis. I completely lost my memory for a while.

I know I had diabetes and acute ingestion, besides gastritis, rheumatism, lumbago and neuritis…


I don’t know how I pulled through it all. It was the hardest spelling test I’ve ever had.

  1. Wow that has you going for a moment there. I studied most of the night for my blood test last week, I still didn’t score that well. They said I was off by several points on some indicators.
