I Would Not Make a Good Drug Addict
Don't get me wrong... I'm all for some Tylenol, Ny-Quil or Sudafed, anything that makes life easier. But in the past few months, after two surgeries, I've realized I can not handle heavy medications. I've know that many antibiotics make me sicker than I originally was, but lately I've taken the intensity of my medication to a whole new level. After the C-section I was too dizzy and nauseated to even watch my son's first bath. The last day I was in the hospital for the same procedure I was puking from the Percocet. I went home with the worst migrain I had ever experienced. When I came out of anesthesia last Tuesday, I threw up. I was given Loratab with my gallbladder surgery because I knew my body couldn't handle the Percocet. Well that didn't work either. When I was leaving the hospital the rooms were spinning. I decided to just take half a pill for the pain, but even that built up in my system and yesterday I had such an awful headache I just had to lay in a dark quiet room. I don't understand how people enjoy being drugged up. I hate it. I would rather be in pain than take a pain pill and experience the side effects!
