My life sucks. How could it have come to this? If the wind was blowing, I’d have been pissing in it for sure, probably with my mouth open so I could swallow it up. indd 52 5/6/08 12:45:21 PM SEARCHING F O R T H E S E A R C H PA R T Y debating the pros and cons of consuming my own bodily fluids. Again. Drinking from my jocks would be more palatable this time, I reasoned. I’d tried it already and at least I knew what foulness to expect. The warmness of it, as much as the taste, put me off the first time around.

My progress astonished the doctors. They had expected me to lose the use of my foot entirely, but instead I came close to getting back full use of it in a matter of months. indd 24 5/6/08 12:45:18 PM LOST LOVE The leg brace would have to stay attached for a couple of years, but my foot was saved.
