Sometimes Real Life Does Get in the Way

Sorry I have been away for so long. Sometimes real life does get in the way and there is nothing more "real life" than illness. I have been down with a pretty bad lung infection for about two months. It started innocently enough with a worse than usual cold that lasted two weeks. The last few days I developed a cough and chest congestion that didn't go away with the rest of the cold symptoms. Being a typical male, I ignored it and just pushed through it, working long hours for some new clients I wanted to impress. About three weeks after the chest congestion and coughing started, I was still hacking away. My wife suggested multiple times that I see a doctor but I put her off saying it was getting better and I didn't have time. To assuage her, I did start taking a Z-pack antibiotic that she always keeps to treat her frequent urinary tract infections. A week later, the Z-pack completed, I convinced myself that it was getting better. It wasn't. A few days later, I was having some difficulty breathing while lying down. My wife put her foot down (finally!) and just called my doctor the next morning and got me in for an afternoon appointment.
The results of my exam was a little startling to say the least. The doctor said I had a serious lung infection and that I was breathing on one and a half lungs. If I had waited any longer, the lung would have been knocked out completely. I had pneumonia. He started me on a round of antibiotics - the strongest available for a lung infection. I started to feel better after several days but it took the full ten day treatment before my lungs were clear. I am doing fine now.
I do wonder though whether I would have followed my wife's direction to see the doctor immediately if we hadn't been in a Wife Led Relationship - if the precedent for following her guidance was not already deeply embedded in me. I hate going to doctors and usually avoid them, confident that my good health and strong constitution will see me through. There was also the siren song of new clients - working to impress. Could I have gone another week or two without treatment? Maybe not. The doctor said I would have been on one lung and the infection would surely have spread further. I don't know. My wife, and our Wife Led Relationship, may well have saved my life.
For all of you men out there who are reluctant to see a doctor - listen to your wife! Go! Before it is too late. Sometimes you don't get a second chance to be mule headed and stupid.
For all of my readers - if you find this blog entry to be un-erotic, well it is. I didn't have much of a desire for sex while I was ill so wearing a chastity device seemed like waste of time. But I have recovered and my wife and I have started a new chastity adventure. In some ways, we have come full circle to the beginnings of our journey but wiser with three years of chastity play experience. I will write more about it in my next blog entry, which I promise will not be three months later. In the meantime, take a moment to take a deep breath, admire the beautiful curves of your wife or significant other, and appreciate the day and your life.
