“I used to be within the hospital. I wakened. There’s six medical doctors in entrance of me, a nephrologist, a heart specialist, an infectious illness physician, and they’re very, very mad at me as a result of I’m not taking my drugs. I’m being very impolite. I’m not listening to directions. I didn’t wish to imagine it was as unhealthy as they had been telling me. I didn’t wish to hear unhealthy information. The unhealthy information means I can’t work and I can’t earn money, as if that’s every little thing in life, which it isn’t.
They’re speaking to me. One man stated, ‘Nicely, Mr. Ashenoff, because you don’t appear to know the gravity of the scenario, I’m going to place it to you in black and white. There’s an excellent probability, and once I imply an excellent probability, over 60%, that your coronary heart goes to cease. What would you want us to do with that coronary heart?’
The opposite man goes, ‘Clearly, that didn’t appear to elicit a response out of you. Your kidneys are failing. What would you want us to do with that? Donate it to science?’ Then one other man walks in, a Chaplain, and you realize I hate faith and the motherf*** needed to wish with me, I nearly threw him out the window. However that’s actual shit, bro. Then you definately survey your life and also you say, ‘What have I accomplished? Had a variety of enjoyable. Took a variety of medicine. Traveled the world. Instructed lots of people to go get f**ked.’ However, I did it my means. On the finish of day, I’m not, in any means, form, or type, going to kowtow, bend to, kiss a**, simply because there’s folks on this business which have cash and everyone is attempting to get as a lot cash as they will they usually don’t wish to inform them the reality…I’m not a dramatic man…”
He continued, “I’m not, ‘Look how a lot I work. Look how sick I’m.’ That’s simply not me. It doesn’t make me higher than anyone. It doesn’t make me smarter than anyone. It’s simply who I’m. On the finish of the day, I simply wish to dwell no matter I’ve left, whether or not it’s sooner or later, two days. What does it make a distinction if at my funeral if 5 guys are there or 300 guys are there? I’m useless. What did I do whereas I used to be right here? What did I assist do? My internal being is a useful individual. There’s no means I might have helped so many guys that aren’t my members of the family if there wasn’t part of me that likes to assist folks. However, what are you going to be identified for? On the finish of the day, I had an awakening. I’m very lucky and I don’t overdramatize this, to be alive.”
