Today, still suffering, I went to see my regular doctor about my ribcage/chest/lung pains and associated nastinesses. He examined me and delivered his verdict:
"You're fat," he said.
"I demand a second opinion," I said.
"You're ugly, too," he said.
Well, not really, but it seems that my problem is muscular, which is a relief. But he did suggest that I should return as soon as possible to Papworth (the heart hospital) to get my pacemaker checked.
Oh, and the usual: watch my diet, get more exercise, cut down my alcohol intake, avoid large women on tractors.....
So, I am going to be good: I am going to eat fewer potatoes from now on.
