You'll Never Believe What Happened

I had the toughest time of my life. First, I got angina pectoris and then arteriosclerosis. 

Just as I was recovering from these, I got tuberculosis, double pneumonia and phthisis. 

Then they gave me hypodermics. 

Appendicitis was followed by tonsillectomy. 

These gave way to aphasia and hypertrophic cirrhosis.

 I completely lost my memory for a while. 

  I know I had diabetes and acute indigestion, besides gastritis, rheumatism, lumbago and neuritis. 

I don't know how I pulled through it all. It was the hardest spelling test I've ever had.
