    Werd, I caugth staph at the gym and had to get the little abscesses cut off my stomach. Then my nose kept bleeding for no reason I went to the doc and found out that shit was in my nose. Wash you fucking hands and sterlize your balls after you get out of the gym.

    My ex girlfriend had/has MRSA. She's a figure skater and she caught it in China I think. Hers has been recurring and she was in and out of the hospital a couple times.

    I came home after the gym and noticed my workout shorts smelled like poop. I checked my underwear and all was good, but I must have sat in someone's sweat mixed with crap.. Gah - Rose! :ugh:
