Every month, I gather up the health-related haiku I wrote on Twitter and put it into a blog post.  It becomes a “snapshot” of what my health was like.  If I’m going to complain about my health, I may as well find a creative way to express it.

My Twenty Sixteen
Starts with stress about money
And loss of support
January 3, 2016

Extremely relieved
Obama used his veto
Health care protected

I think I have the flu
Went to the grocery store
Someone there was sick

I still have the flu
Writing political blog
While running fever

I am awake now
Had allergic reaction
Today will be tough

Half a Benadryl
Better ease this sinus pain
Can’t stand it no more
January 16, 2016

No Tamale fest
Woke with sinus and joint pain
Making plans? Pointless!

Acupuncture day!
Been in lots of pain for days
Hoping this will help

One thing at a time
Might be the best plan for me
Slow progress will do

Big bad allergies
Gotta go outside today
Doctors appointment

I am on new drugs
Things are kinda weird right now
But, I will adjust
