Yet Another Jay and Deb Production.
If you have been reading this blog for very long, you know I have a not-so-secret love affair with prescription drugs. I am a pharmaceutical pack rat. I don't lie to get a prescription, I don't fake illnesses and I am not addicted. I know, all addicts say that, but I promise you, it's true. However, when I do get good drugs, which when you have brain surgery, YOU GET GOOD DRUGS, I hold on to any leftovers. I refill them to the maximum number of refills and then I horde them for when I really need them.
On Monday, I was diagnosed with strep throat. Not a particularly fun or rewarding drug, I am including amoxicillin, since I am currently taking it. I thought it was only fair. The vicodin has been very handy for the throbbing head and neck ache, not to mention the razor sharp feeling in my throat. If you have not had strep throat, all I can say is you should get on bended knee and thank God for that.
So, without further ado, here are my drugs of choice for today's tribute, from left to right:Lexapro, taken daily to prevent those anxiety ridden days and nights; Zanaflex, muscle relaxers, I pretty much have a lifetime supply thanks to missing some skull bone and the lamina portion of C1 vertebrae; Amoxicillin, to kill off that nasty strep bacteria in my throat; and the cream of the crop, Vicodin. They are expired, but I just can't part with a bottle that has precious medication in it. Oh, who doesn't love vicodin? You know what is even better? Vicodin with the muscle relaxers. Ahhhh, better than any day at the spa.
