Mother's Little Helper
I have a friend who is a psychologist. I spend a lot of time with her, not as a patient, but as a friend. She knows my history. I was talking about this anxiety and she said, "Call your doctor and tell her you are traveling and are anxious about the flight. Then ask for some Klonopin." I told her first of all, I didn't think I could pronounce Klonopin, secondly, what the hell is THAT? It's another anti-anxiety med. Just what I need, more drugs. I was telling my husband about this and that valium must be so 70's. He immediately started singing Mother's Little Helper by the Rolling Stones. I immediately downloaded the song to my MP3 player to enjoy on my flight.
I did call the doctor and she was all "oh yeah, there is something for that!" She said they would call it in. I don't know what it will be - Klonopin, Xanax, an IV of anesthesia? Whatever it is, I hope it makes my flight a really happy one.
