Wisdom by Hindsight
I’m on a lot of meds and they keep checking for interactions so this cartoon speaks truth to me.
I found it tragically funny and decided to share with my readers most of who are about my age!
I take very little meds, 3 pills… Coffee is on
You are very fortunate indeed.
I’ve been on a somewhat digital retreat. in part because of this very topic. it’s a great cartoon and I would laugh if it weren’t so true. a few weeks ago I was tested and diagnosed with COPD. she said it could explain why I get pneumonia so easily. my body is just like my father’s. his never tolerated medicine and mine doesn’t either. I took their inhaler ( just as prescribed) ‘powder’ into my lungs for a little over a week. I noticed a horrible sore throat that I hadn’t had before. then my mouth got RED! (not the thrush they talked about but a bright red.) she had given me two samples. Incruse and Anora. and it felt like I had eaten a bowl of chili peppers. or burned it with boiling water. I stopped doing the inhaler. the pain is just now beginning to subside. I will have to happily die of COPD if that is to be. or whatever wants to claim me. I’M THROUGH. no more testing or treating or MIS-treating. yogic breathing will be my choice. and staying out of the heat and humidity as much as I can.
There comes a time in all seniors when it becomes imperative to decide on quite what to follow and what not to on the matter of health. I think that you are doing the right thing if the cure is worse than the disease.
the medical field seem to be on a band wagon…I take only my inhaler (both preventative/remedy) for Asthma, right now taking extra due to winter ailment arriving…I add over the counter meds for various small issues.. Catherine de Seton recently posted..Winter ailments
Thank you Keith. Nice to see you back commenting here.
I only take one daily pill, but my mum was on a whole range of pills by the time she died. I wouldn’t be surprised if all those pills had something to do with her increasing confusion and scattiness.
I am on the last day of a course of medicines and I am looking forward to being on one capsule of multivitamins daily again.
