Better Living Through Chemistry

After a lot of deep thought, I remembered what I was going to write about. I'm a little dense these days. Call it chemo brain or even lyrica brain. I complained to my therapist about that this week and she said it could be the lyrica which is causing me to have absolutely NO short term memory. Tell me something now and ask me in 15 minutes and I may have no recall. But that's not what I was going to write about.

Years back a friend of mine admitted to me that she was on anti-depressants and she called it better living through chemistry. We laughed about it and I then promptly forgot about it. Now that I am an 'expert' on the subject (being a patient makes one an expert on your course of treatment) I ponder this statement as well as I can ponder when I keep forgetting.

Better living through chemistry. Well, I think I am a specialist. With chemistry and medicine, it is doubtful I would still be here with all my medical crap. I mean would I have even survived my earlier medical crap? Now with anti-depressants are making life a little more 'dealable' (a new technical term), I think I can really say life is better with chemistry.

Now I am late again. I have another PT appointment at 730 and still need to take a shower, eat breakfast, etc and leave in 45 minutes. So in other words, bye.
