Today’s post is being broken down into upsides and downsides.

Downside: I have a full blown gout flareup going on. My ankle has been on fire for 20 hours or so. Can’t sleep. Can’t walk. Can’t do much of anything.

Upside: I finally got some medication to reduce the inflammation at about 12pm today.

Downside: It has only dulled the pain to the point that I can lay in bed without it hurting very much. It still is extremely painful to move my foot at all, let alone put any pressure on it. Trips to the bathroom have been hilarious.

Upside: My mom came and got Mr. Larry so that I wouldn’t have to try to get him outside and back in.

Downside: That leaves me all alone. Awww poor Ben.

Upside: The pain meds I’m on are helping a bit.

Downside: I keep seeing things like this in my room:














Upside: I’ve watched a LOT of Archer and It’s Always Sunny, and now I’m going to take some more pain meds and watch Skyfall.

Downside: I haven’t been able to stand up in about a day.

Upside: My apetite is for shit, so I’ve just been drinking water and Gatorade. By the time I develop bedsores I’ll probably be down 20 pounds!

Downside: I’m a 31 year old man that’s been bedridden for a whole 24 hour period because his kidneys can’t process uric acid.

Upside: I should be up and at it tomorrow sometime and just a little sore. You really gain perspective when you are down for the count. I don’t plan on taking the ability to stand for granted any time soon. It could be MUCH worse, and I’m very thankful that my family is around to take care of me when I can’t do it myself.

Upside: This just makes me sooooo ready to get back into the healthy lifestyle that much quicker, and just throw myself into it. I’ve got the cabin fever baby! LET’S GO ALREADY!

Upside: I think these pain meds are kicking in. winky face.

Oh…also here’s Topanga in Maxim….

    DOWNSIDE: you’re probably starting to really smell from being bedridden and broke down
    UPSIDE: you can hire really hot girls to give you sponge baths!!

    Think Ben think!! This can all be used to your advantage! Your kid is gone for the weekend!!!

    • I’ll have you know that I showered before bed last night and changed my sheets because I had a feeling this was coming! Now If you’ll excuse me, my pain meds and I are going to go fight the bad haircut guy from No Country For Old Men with Daniel Craig!
