ASHMAN isn’t at the AHNALD

Quick and filthy updates on my heart nonsense… Cardioversion held for about 10 minutes, until I coughed and went BACK into Afib… go figure. The next step is the ablation which has a much better success rate of correcting rhythm issues.

Until the rhythm is fixed I am NOT pushing myself to the max in the gym. Oh I know, “you are not hardcore enough”, “you only live once”, yea… fuck that… I would rather my living once be to the best of my ability to stay alive rather than be a moron about things.

I am getting my shape back slowly, strength will come back when I want it to.
