Golf Should Stay on the Golf Course
This week has been a quite sucky one to put in the least. Last Saturday, I came down with something awful. I had horrible sinus congestion, a bad headache, and terrible diarrhea. Overtime, I figured out that I probably had a sinus infection on top of having a Crohn’s disease flare-up (which explains the diarrhea). I pretty much couldn’t breath through my nose until Thursday, when in the shower, I hacked up two golf-ball sized chunks of mucus. These were probably the biggest chunks of mucus I’ve ever hacked up in my life. I almost wish I would have caught them so I could display them for my peers.
Speaking of my Crohn’s, I’ve started a new medication today. Its an immuno-suppressant. The reason I’m on it is because Crohn’s disease is basically caused because my over-active immune system is attacking the natural digestive bacteria that resides in my colon. So, this medication is supposed to be like, “Hey immune system! Chill out.” I’m glad to be on it, but I’m worried that it’ll cause me to get colds and such easier. Maybe I’ll be able to cough up more golf-ball sized mucus chunks again.
