It’s just not worth it!
On Friday morning 7/6, I woke up with severe pains to the right side of my chest and back it’s all a very long story but I’m actually being treated in a clinic with depression, the result of my wife trying to commit suicide 7 weeks ago!
I couldn’t get the vision out of my head so I went to the bottle in an attempt to block it out. After 4 weeks my situation declined immensely so the next move was professional treatment in a clinic. So that’s where I’m at now.
I decided since I’m in here it would be wise to give up the smokes as well, the thought of getting up during the night in the freezing cold for s cigarette was enough to go with it.
Nevertheless I’ve been doing well, I’ve had no cravings or withdrawals until last Friday when the doctor came to visit me in my room with the bade news.
Theodore, after examining you and receiving your blood results , I’m not sure, but I think you may have a pulmonary embolism in your lungs. Guys that was my first craving in 10 days.
I’ll cut to the chase, paramedics were here and waiting to take me straight to Er where the immediately commenced the tests and scans.
They found not one but 10 pulmonary embolisms (blood clots) at the top of my lungs and as the doctor explained to me, they were travelling which meant they were either going to my heart or to my brain. The result is usually always fatal!
After nearly 24 hours in Er I decided there and then that I still have a lot of unfinished business in this life.
I know I will never pick them up again, I’m in the clear now being treated with blood thinners that essentially dissolve the clots!
I hope my story helps even one person, life’s to precious I feel, so I say to you all...
