One Pill Makes You Larger

Yesterday I went to the doctor for my pre-physical and so far I am healthy... EAT THAT WORLD! Well, I was told I do need to loss weight, which I already knew. While talking about exercise I mentioned that even though I usually get eight hours sleep I toss and turn all night, and I wake up usually just as sore as the day before and tired, so she prescribed me a muscle relaxer to take at night. It's suppose to relax me or I as I call it knock my ass out so I don't toss and turn as much.

Then I just happen to mention that when I do get a little stress I have the tendency to sweat. The nurse practitioner mentioned I might have a slight tendency to get anxious so she prescribed me another medication for that. I'm suppose to take one when things get a little hectic which in news is every day.... some times twice on Tuesdays, some Thursday, oh Mondays suck... OK all the freaking time. With this pill I'm hopping when things get a little bit too much to handle it will allow me not to over think and keep my head from racing.

I truthfully never though I'd be the person who has to take pills. I know a lot of pills are helpful, but it seems like a lot of people take them as a crutch. Oh I'm taking this for my feet, and this one for anxiety, this one because I get depressed, oh yeah and this one for blood pressure. I hope I'm not falling into that trap and I'm taking pills because the doctor thinks they will help instead of finding another way.

better to take a pill than be a pill!

I took muscle relaxers last year to help me sleep. They worked but I woke up so groggy that I quit taking them.

I used to hate pills too, but if they can do the job...

I'm having the problem with being groggy and that is with a half a dose. I still have not taken the anti-anxiety pill yet, I should have yesterday, but I forgot the pills at home.
