I understand how readers of my blog might think a DVT would be a seriously gloomy, painful experience. That's wrong, however, and I am here to set the record straight. Here are the top three reasons why my DVT has helped me out:

1) It makes me live in the moment

As macabre as it sounds, with a DVT hanging out in my leg, I can literally go from healthy to dead in a matter of seconds. That kind of prognosis quickly gives ya a new outlook on life.

2) My apartment has never been cleaner

It is my understanding that people with DVT's should take extra care to warmdown after training. This is because you don't want blood to pool in the legs. When I get home after riding, I do all of my house cleaning. I jump right off the bike and take care of the laundry, dishes, sweeping, etc. It keeps me moving, it lets the blood flow settle down, and it makes my house look happy!

3) It lets me stick it to the man

You may not know it from reading my triathlon themed blog, but I am one of the biggest conspiracy theorists you'll ever meet.

You have your head in the sand if you don't realize that the world's richest individuals control the world's media and government organizations.

Between all of my prescriptions and my doctor's appointments, I cost the insurance company millions of dollars per month. Granted I am still paying this insurance money directly back to big business (hospital, pharmaceutical companies). But, it makes me feel good to take some out of the insurance company's pocket.

I love the positive thinking. When you finish your house, you are welcome to clean mine! Seriously, PLEASE take care of yourself.
