Fully sick

The story:


On the 9th Dec, just before Christmas and the festive season, I was diagnosed with Tuberculosis and placed into a quarantined room in Sydney Hospital. After three and a half weeks in hospital, I was released briefly because the doc's thought that they would have had the Tuberculosis under control with standard treatments, but was called back into the lonely little cell on the 18th Jan when some test results showed that my particular strain of TB was "multi-drug resistant", meaning that it was a much more intense treatment program, over a longer period of time. Shitballs.

I am an Australian, born and raised, but I had done some travel in South Africa and South America, so it's believed that I picked up the TB somewhere on one of those journeys.

In any case, I have now spent about 60 days in quarantine so far, on my own, and it's likely that I'll be here for another 4+ weeks. To take my mind off the treatment, the loneliness and the situation that I have found myself in, I have been playing around making some songs and some clips for those songs, then putting them up on Youtube. Taking the time to bring my friends and other people a bit of a laugh, has been a great way for me to feel as if I am taking a bad situation and making it somehow positive.
