i am tired of taking pills. pills for everything except getting old because they have no pill for that. pills for the effects of getting old, yes. and heaven help me, they want to add another one. the past 3 years i have chanted “no more pills” and for 3 years i’ve been ignored. no more. if they want to prescribe me a pill they have to take 2 away first. what’s best for me is listening to my heart, to my psyche, to the person crying out for just ONE of them to hear me.
gp says “blood test, we need to see about adding another medication” which part of NO MORE PILLS do these people not understand??? i refuse to start taking my morning pills in two handfuls cause i can’t get them all down in one. they’re buying me “10 more years”. 10 more years of this?? the pain, the depression, emptiness, loneliness, AND PILLS??? nu uh. so i die at 72 instead of 82 big frickin deal. social security is disappearing – there won’t be any money for all these meds.
so forget it, Doc(s). it ain’t gonna happen.
… and the first person who says i need a pill for my attitude, dies.
