Default I'm still alive and still around

I'm not dead, I'm not in jail, and I haven't quit growing bananas and plantains. I am just on the road all the time now.

I got close to you in Donalsonville in May, but I was in and out for work in 8 hours. I was in Moultrie for a few days at the beginning of the year, but I had a bad reaction to some Medicine I was on and ended up with Chemical induced Lupus. I was in the hospital for a bit.

No, I have epilepsy and had recently switched medications, the medication I had switched to basically caused my body to attack itself. Once I quit, it didn't get any worse, but it took a few months to feel better. Strangest thing I've ever experienced, every joint and tendon in my body was in pain, and I was covered in mysterious bruises, all from a pharmaceutical.

I planted these in July and they are starting to thrive. Unfortunately, the grass is thriving as well.

Is that the same FHIA-18 group as the ones I got? I lost all of those this past winter. I have rescued a small pup growing from a rotten corm. It about 18" tall now and growing well.
