Ty Webb to Danny: "Do you take drugs, Danny?"
Danny: "Every day"
Ty: "Good. So, what’s the problem?"
(name that movie)
Chris and I were talking at dinner last night (that in itself is a shock, I mean, what, married people talking???) and I mentioned it occurred to me the other day that I had been taking Advil every day. I’ve always taken a fair amount of medicine for headaches, but then I started taking it for various running aches and pains plus violin pains…and suddenly you realize you’ve been taking 2 to 6 Advil a day (well, really, generic, but same idea) for as long as you can recall. Certainly for a couple of months. I’m worried I’m addicted to Advil! Is that possible? I mean, surely I can’t be in pain all the time, right? Plus, I’m guessing it can’t be GREAT for my body to take drugs every day…and it seems if I’m not used to taking it all the time, when I do take it it would be more effective, right? (disclaimer: am not a doctor)
So today I am going to try not to take any Advil. I feel like if I can go one day without it, then I’m okay. So far I’m okay. My legs and "glutes" hurt, but nothing I can’t handle. I will try to stay up on my caffeine and water consumption to fend off any headaches. My stress level is pretty high, but it is (hopefully) balanced out by the fact that I don’t have any teaching. In fact, I am going to the mall, and since it’s not Christmastime or the weekend, that is pretty unstressful (you know I hate crowds).
So, dear readers. I need your support in the upcoming 12 hours…wish me luck in my endeavour to become "drug-free."
