I am rather adverse to taking meds; I will find a way around it if I can. I am trying out some prescriptions, hoping to get some pain relief without using narcotics or steroids. Lucky for me, there were some options available, some things I hadn't tried yet. I can note a change already (the doctor said it may take a week or two), but she wasn't kidding when she said these puppies would make me sleepy. Good thing I am ramping up slowly over the next three weeks or I, dear reader, would still be in bed.
There was a fire drill at the school yesterday while I was doing a little research for Lexi's teacher. As I stood to follow the kids out of the building, I could have sworn I saw smoke. I had a sudden sense of urgency until I remembered the pharmacist saying something about visual disturbances. I paused (until the librarian yelled at me) to think that hallucinations may be hazardous to my parenting skills, and then I considered how terse and impatient I can be when my nerves are angry.
(Um, I'll take door number three, please.)
Sure hope the school doesn't host a anti-drug campaign this week. My kids will rat my sorry stoned butt out and never look back. Well, until they get hungry that is.
