“I am human and I need to be loved, just like everybody else does.”

It seems that Morrissey has been told that maybe it’s time for him to step out of the limelight and retire.

Morrissey has had a series of health issues including, a stomach ulcer, pneumonia, and a throat condition called Barrett’s esophagus thus revealing he suffered so much blood loss that it sparked anemia and led to a number of other issue s.

As of now, Morrissey is recuperating in Mexico and revealed during an interview with station Rector 105.7 the following:

"I had a very bad time. I had internal bleeding and I was rushed into hospital and I had lost a lot of blood. They tried to patch me together over the following five weeks but it didn't work. ... I was on lots of IV drips for almost five weeks, and each time it seemed as though I was back to robust health I would decline ... I had lost so much blood I had become anemic, but I'm still receiving ongoing treatment and I am very optimistic now.

It almost became absurd the number of things that happened to me, but everything just attacked me at once. The double pneumonia -- everything was really a result of the fact I had lost so much blood, so the immune defenses were very, very low and couldn't cope with anything, so therefore the slightest gust of wind and I would have a terrible cold."

When asked about him being advised to retire for good due to his ailing health, he replied:

"I have been cautioned to, but it's difficult for me because it's very ingrained in me."
