Since PAD confessed, I feel I should confess too.

Though his steroid usage was recent, mine was 21 years ago. Doctor prescribed. Nurse fed. I was almost completely paralyzed from the neck down, so it wasn’t like I could say no when they stuck the drugs inside my mouth.

I’m not paralyzed anymore. So, obviously, it must have been the steroids that did the trick.

I don’t recall lifting any buicks, or 37 hour marathons, but my access to buicks in the hospital to attempt to lift were sparse. What happened between me and my nurses I’d like to keep private.
