I have a good number of minor disorders that have left me with the physical capabilities of most seventy year olds even though I’m only in my forties.
The first was the strangest.
Pneumonia around age five - Was watching the opening of the Brady Bunch
My dad asked me a question, I didn’t respond, he saw my eyes rolling completely backwards in my head.
I woke up briefly screaming in a bathtub of ice (old school solution to high fever) and blacked out again.
Woke up briefly again in the backseat of a squad car with sirens rolling and blacked out again.
Don’t remember how that was resolved.
Later in my early twenties I was getting a nasty cold while on a construction site installing alarms. Cold damp weather and a storm was rolling in. I began hearing the Brady Bunch theme playing in my head.
Needless to say, pretty nasty fever.
