I am so sorry to be the bearer of such very sad and personal news. And I realise that this blog is such an awful way to hear this terrible news but it seemed the quickest way to get the message out there as it's all been so sudden and I fear the end is very close now.
I guess I just have to just come out and say it. I have been recently self diagnosed with that most crippling and debilitating disorders that strikes down male members of the human species without warning. Yes, my friends I have the big MF. The big one. Man Flu.
As the men reading this will know it is nearly always fatal so I have contacted close family and friends who are as I type this rushing to be by my side. I plainly only have hours to live.
The doctors can do nothing for me and have said that aspirin, drinking lots of water and plenty of rest is all they can suggest to relieve the agony as the end draws ever nearer. God Bless them they even managed a smile in the local pharmacy when I broke the awful news. Those brave, brave men.
No flowers please and remember me fondly. Please be good to Stuart and encourage him to move on with his life.
Adieu mes amis. I go to a better place. (sniffle)
