sometimes life just ain't fair
I spend 30 yrs of my life in the US Army chasing bad guys in some of the worse conditions and contaminated countries in the world. I think I can now retire and come home, play some ball, meet some new people not wearing OD Green and just enjoy life. Well things aren't happening that way.
Played ball in an absolute windy dust bowl this past weekend. felt good starting out...then the lungs starting burning. This doesn't look good. Came home, rested and thought I could play hard today. Got through 1 game pretty much til the last inning...started again...dang it...went to the Dr. only have 40% use of lungs right now...have to take a month off from playing...breathing exercises and some kind of treatment that I can't spell. THIS SUCKS!
I have a tourney in Medford in 2 weeks, told the Dr. you have 2 weeks to make me better because I'm playing no matter what. He said he understood, just to take it easy and have fun....take it easy?...I don't know how to take it easy playing the game I love. But I guess he understands...he is setting it up so I can get my treatments in Medford....woohoo!

Maybe you should just be thankful that you are home and able to play. I know of many that are not so lucky!
