As I age, I have to take more & more pills.
One to start my day, one to make me pee, one to give me the vitamins I just peed, one to clam me down. One to get me going.
One to get rid of allergies (I never even knew I had allergies...)
One for memory (or.... was that 2?...) one for the aches and pains I have. One so I don't get aches and pains. One so I can breath.
One so my heart will keep going.
I'm afraid to go to the doctor's anymore because he'll just prescribe another pill. Probably a "pest pill" so I won't bother him anymore.
And I think I'm HEALTHY! Can you imagine if I were sick??
Really don't remember taking all that many pills when I was younger. My tolerance to pills was very low.
I used to get high on Midol....almost made me really look forward to my period! Almost.
Could never drink. Low tolerance there too. That's OK - the only way I liked wine was if I put a little Sweet-n-Low in it...got the "wine snobs" really ticked off.
Used to be able to take Excedrin for headaches - that'd wipe 'em right out.
Can't take that now - if I did I'd have to take a stomach pill to get rid of the stomach ache I got from the pill I took to get rid of my headache.
When the heck did all this happen?
And, have you noticed, they're making these pills the size of horse pills. Do you know how much liquid is required to get one Potassium pill down??
Then the pee pill kicks in............
I have to run potty so much I get tired and my legs hurt, which makes me take a Tylenol. And a vitamin.
Or did I already take that...???
Oh well, I think I'll take a Tylenol PM and a vitamin with my coffee and see if I can sleep-walk the dogs really really fast....before I have to pee again. .....
Have a pain-free day, will ya?!
