John Laughlin - Gap Ruffled Skirt - 2/3/14 - Yes, I'm still alive.
  1. ruffled skirt


    , in Gap Skirts

Been three weeks since my last current posting. Most of the time has been spent in bed, thanks to two things hitting me at once. The flu, and a gout attack to end all gout attacks. Walking is a slow and painful process right now. At least, I can do it now. A couple weeks ago, no.

Apologies for the shirt being messed up.

hey what happened? :)
John Laughlin
Gout arthritis attack that was exacerbated by the flu and the normal body aches caused by that. Happened on January 10th. So, it's been almost a month.
Leah Luna

John Laughlin
Arthritis in both legs... Thanks. It's taking some time, but I'm better than I was earlier.
Thisbe Guevarra
OMG! What happened!?
take care always! <3
John Laughlin
:-) Gout arthritis attack. Hit both knees and both feet. That, combined with the usual aches from the flu, put me in bed for three weeks.

Thanks, will do. <3

Avoid gout triggering foods and take meds.
I hope you're doing okay.
Be safe always!
Btw, HYPED! ^_^
John Laughlin
Thanks, man. Been on a pretty strict diet for the past 5 years. Have cut out pork, fish, beans, minimized my consumption of beef and turkey, and other items that have purine in them.
Anthony Shieh
Yeesh. That's hard. :(
At the end of every day, always remember that..
YOU CAN DO IT! Keep it up!
Stay amazing! ^_^
John Laughlin
I actually don't mind it. Beans give me gas (I know, TMI), so cutting them out was no big deal. Same with most species of fish. So, it's stuff that I don't miss.
