I’m Dying

They told me I had hep-C in 2008. Now 10 years later I’m really sick. High blood pressure, kidney disease, adrenal glands have masses on them, and heart disease. It’s no ones fault but my own. I was a drug addict for years, and now I’m dying. The meds I take make me terribly sick and I hurt all over. I’m not afraid of death, and if I’m going to die I hope it’s soon. I’m ready to throw in the towel.
