I hate medication. I NEVER take the stuff. My doc always resorts to extreme begging and bribery for me to even take the mildest aspirin. I just hate the idea of remedying everything with chemicals [Please Note: Tequila & Champagne are NOT chemicals. They are nectars of the gods.] At this time of year, I would rather shnarf a salt solution for sinus, than pop a sinu-tab.
My doc finally somehow coerced me into starting meds. He warned me that I will feel a few side effects when I start them, and to just bare through them and all will pass.
If he had told me the side effects were like this I would’ve been on these years ago!!!
I am as high as a kid’s freed helium balloon.
This is better than when we hotboxed a cellar in Bordeaux! Or when a varsity friend and I decided to skip the sieving stage of a magic fudge recipe, and ended up eating a large bowl of green fudge. (Ha Ha. I still love that memory. My 5ft tiny friend helping herself to her 4th overloaded plate at the buffet of her English Society’s very sober Medieval Ball, where we were dressed in her old matric dance dresses cause her stoned logic told us that’s how we would look medieval! They weren’t impressed. And I can’t say we were able to care.)
And this is all legal!
Currently I am just staring at colleagues. When I hang up the phone I have become uncertain as to whether the call went on too long, if I was failing to respond on time, or if it even happened at all. Apparently I am not meant to be operating heavy machinery, like automobiles, while feeling this “dizzy”. No more coffee needed, I feel like a pint of my blood has been replaced with Red Bull. Luckily my boss is out of town for the week.
AND in a few days I have to increase the dosage. By then I will be flying through the solar system! I will pass your condolences on to Pluto.
Not all of it is great though. I do also feel like I am training for distant-future morning sickness. I am living on black tea at the moment.
But now please excuse me, I am off to stare at dancing lights on my keyboard.
High as a bluddy kite.
