Pleurisy's a b1tch! Feels like being shot in the chest every time you try to draw a deep breath. whenever I'd have a bout, my dad would use an old country method of wrapping his belt around my chest and cinching it just loose enough for you to breath, but just tight enough to prevent you from involuntarily fully expanding your lungs (for example, sighing or hic-coughing) until the initial inflammation subsided.
As a child, I was subject to asthma, pleurisy, and chronic bronchitis (which I still have)
Duh most of which "miraculously cleared-up" once I left home (moved away from the chemical factory across the street that was later designated as a 'Super-Fund Site'.)
As for losing the significant other (*again) I'm about to face that prospect once again next week.
Ted's already had 2 heart attacks, and has taken up smoking again ...now one of his buddies has asked him to show up next week to dig enough post-holes to erect a picket fence.
* I've a record rivaling Nathan Bedford Forrest. I'm starting to think I'm jinxed. Seriously, how does one dissuade a strong-minded individual from doing whateverthefuktheywantu, even though you can see the cliff from way off...?
