I'm older than you by half-a-decade. Had the flu for Xmas (Just like the
CSN&Y song). Smoke. Live houseless, on a thousand dollars a month,
therefore not getting the best nutrition or a place to bed down and
rest/recuperate all day, and yet after four days of mid-grade fever and
chills, and a few more with a phlemy cough, I'm very much alive.

Don't let your own fears snuff you.
