Four years of diuretics melting the muscles off
my body. Reduced blood pumping to the extremities,
making my hands and feet and face look old beyond
their time. Natural attrition, including aging and
terrible looking teeth I don't have the money to
get fixed.

I have become a mummy. One who lives again.

"I am protected from the evil of those who are
still in their days. I am not among them."
