A Sober Post About Drugs

So a little break in between my gratitude posts. I have always been someone who never really imbibed in drugs or alcohol very much. I like an occasional glass of something, but it is occasional. On the subject of drugs, I barely took Tylenol. Until I got my cancer diagnosis.

I know this seems like a totally random post. I just started to think about this today. Today was the first day I went totally pain-med free. Since September. I was on some pretty hefty stuff. As in I was actually afraid to drive myself around for about a month. My body became dependent on it, so once I was ready to stop taking it, I had to slowly lower my dosages. Then I looked at all the other meds I am taking:

This is not including the D3 I have to take to go along with the calcium, the mouthwash I need to use so I can taste food, or the four other medications that I have stopped taking in the past month. I have to use a list to remember where to put each medication. It also took me forever to remember what each pill was. I will also be stopping a few other medicines within the next month. Which will be nice. Mostly because I hate taking so many pills, but I also miss the occasional beer or glass of wine and there are a few pills in there that will not react well with alcohol. I can wait. I am getting down there.

Day 8: Restaurant

Ugh. y’all are going to judge me so hard for this one. I am thankful for McDonald’s. That one McDonald’s nearish my house in particular. The one that redid their play area about 2 years ago. That play area has saved my sanity the past few winters. I’m not keen on their food, but I love those indoor play places. I do, however, really like their regular coffee and iced tea. It’s a little sad that a fast food restaurant has the best iced tea in town.

Day 7: Scent

Scent? I suppose baby head. Sounds weird, I know. Looks weird seeing it written down. But seriously, I love to sniff my babies’ heads. It doesn’t smell so good once they get older and active, but there is something about a baby’s smell that is really kind of intoxicating.
