Hey everybody, Yesterday I drove myself to the hospital having a hard time breathing because of a pain in my back. They thought I was having a pulminary embelism, or a blood clot in my lung, which could be very dangerous. I guess the major cause of this is sitting for long periods of time, and I have been driving a ninety minute to two hour commute every day for the past eight years.

It turned out that I have viral pneumonia, which is also not good. But I was very relieved to find out that it was not the pulminary embelism.

The whole thing has been a real eye opener for me. For those few hours I began to wonder if I wouldn't be here for Darcie and the kids. And even if I would be okay would this get me discharged from the Coast Guard.

I'm not going to preach or throw warning out there to everyone. Because I know if it was me it would probably be falling on deaf ears. But nonetheless don't let a day go by that you don't appreciate life and your loved ones.

Went through a viral pnemonia called Mico-plasm back when I was about 33 or so Brian.
I don't mean to be a party-pooper or a naysayer, but brother you aren't gonna feel very good, for a while. I hope you recover alot quicker than I did.

like alot of people here i have been through the samething
invest in a treadmill , and use it on a low setting for a steady pace

but it in front of the t.v so it doesnt get boring

id avoid long strenus sports , because if you pull muscles will take longer for them to heal

I got a call over the weekend that I have to go back to the hospital today. They're doing a second reading on the scan to make sure that it wasn't a pulminary embelism. I'm feeling a lot better. No more stabbing pain in my back and chest. But I guess if there is a blood clot in my lung they have to give me medicine to break it up.

Please keep your fingers crossed for me. Thanks

Fingers crossed and a healing prayer going out to you, Brian. Stay on the meds, stay rested and get yourself better. Have had pneumonia - it's not fun.

Glad things were no worse than they were.

I'm overweight, out of shape, mentally exhausted, and sometimes wonder daily how much longer my old drug abused shell is going to be around. It really scares me sometimes. No health insurance any longer either.


Take Care of yourself, your family loves 'n' needs you.

Hope you get better soon.
