There I was, minding my own business and I got waylaid by illness. Yes, I know I’ve told you all about it. Went over the practical applications to prevent in the future. What I didn’t discuss is the drug induced haze I’ve been in ever since. Prescription meds mind you but they have the same effect.
A friend recently was having some issues with his pain medications. The doctors had him on morphine and it wasn’t working for him. He ended up having a very rough reaction and went through a month of anguish trying to get back to an even keel. In a similar fashion, though not to the extreme I have been having issues with my prescribed medications to help me get over the pneumonia.
One makes me hyper like I’m an 8-year-old that consumed twelve redbulls. Another messes with my hormones and I’ve been on this emotional rollercoaster that I can’t seem to get off of. It’s like the horror ride in a Scooby Doo cartoon, only for real! One pill makes me feel hyperactive and another makes me feel like I’m in a hazy nightmare, and the third jerks my emotions around. *One pill makes you happy and one pill makes you sad, . . . go ask Alice*
I was watching The Help and I”m crying because Mae Mobley is such a neglected child. I mean, sobs! This is fiction people! Then, later I was crying with Rutledge when Tanner had opened his car door for him to feel the effects of the tear gas on Top Gear! that was when I realized it was the medicines affecting my hormones that are messing with my emotions. Be glad you’re not living with me right now.
I’ve written words and when I go back over them I think – what on earth was I thinking? I have two more days of one medication, and today is last day of another. Hopefully, I will get back to normal soon. Well, or at least normal for me.
Write on my friends, write on!
