Time and time again I say that to medics and they look back at me as though I’m demented. Yet sat here tonight bombed out of my mind by a cocktail of medicines it’s difficult to understand if the “cure” or even the doctors are worse than the illness.
I fall into a classification that a lot of people do where a little medicine goes a long way. Only when you tell the doctors that they simply look “YOU” up in their reference books, your weight, age, and what ails you and prescribe away.
So I sit there patiently saying time and time again:-
“I only need a little dose” and “A little goes a long way with me”.
That’s VERY TRUE with opiates and my favorite “fall over juice” of all time, MORPHINE.
It works REALLY, R E A L L Y WELL on me.
Wow sort of thing and I haven’t even opened the packet!
A while ago some doctor insisted I use a morphine patch for an injury.
I told him my reaction would be dramatic but he basically patted me on the head and sent me home with the morphine patches anyway.
Five minutes after popping the patch on I walked into my first wall.
Ten minutes later I fell over feeling really numb and more than a little spaced out.
Yet explaining that now has me marked with a label that says I’m allergic to morphine.
And they pay doctors
how much to get it wrong?
Still it’s also immensely useful.
Whatever the drug says it does, it happily works in me.
Only there is always the small print.
I’m the 1 in 100,000 who will turn purple or whatever.
So are you like me or do you need meds by the bucket load before they take effect?
