Yes. But half that amount.

Sydland Level 7 Nov 18, 2018

Yup once a week for years now.

Used to do it for Aunties and Uncles. And also for Clients. I'm that small percent that takes my medication precisely as prescribed. Now that doesn't mean my Doctors don't screw up upon occasion.

Let's not start on what doesn't go in the box though - ok? lol Like the damn asthma inhaler I had to use today because I blew out a closet.

@Lutherzme I blew out my closet today and had an attack - first in probably a year. I also saw my/ neubulizer sitting in there (all boxed up!) and thought "Those 70 lbs. gone helped" - and the new med. did too!

I do not miss not being able to breathe. The feeling of something large parked on my chest was not one I want to repeat. I don't think I'll forget that first ER experience ever.

I hope your transplant solved a lot for you.


This is yet another reason I support the complete legalization of cannabis.
I already know of three medications I could eliminate if I could obtain legal marijuana.

It would for some. It absolutely didn't for me. A few folks with autoimmune issues are absolutely resistant to it.
Like my niece with EDS.

It does work as a muscle relaxant for me. But I can't afford it. (Sigh) yet.


No, I refuse.

@Lutherzme I just couldn't do it. Just me, but I'd rather die.

@nvrnuff then you really don't value life

@LadyAlyxandrea I value quality over quanity

@LadyAlyxandrea That is rather presumptuous of you.

@nvrnuff well these medicines give us quality of life so it's rather insulting to say "I'd rather die than to live like you". Try to imagine how that sounds to people just trying to live the best life they can.

@LadyAlyxandrea Why would my choice be insulting to you? I never said what you say I said.I would rather die than live like that, not saying you have to.

@nvrnuff because you're telling us that if we have to rely on meds to live a decent life that it isnt worth living. You're devaluing our lives by saying you'd rather die than live like we are. If you can't see how that is depressing and hurtful, then I guess we are done here.

@LadyAlyxandrea Like I said it's MY choice.There is no way MY choice devalues YOUR life.

@nvrnuff whatever. Fine. Kill yourself over having to take a couple pills to have a good life. Just shows how you really don't value life. If your life isn't worth a couple pills that is your problem.

@LadyAlyxandrea What is your deal? I obviously don't have a problem with it, thought I made that quite clear.What I do or don't value is none of your business.

@nvrnuff maybe if you had empathy you'd understand what my deal is or why I'm upset. I hope you get therapy because no one should feel it's worth dying just to avoid a few pills like a toddler. Maybe you SHOULD value your life a whole lot fucking more because guess what a lot of us don't fucking WANT to die and would gladly take medicine if it meant a few more years with our loved ones. You saying that shit is basically saying we should just die.

Value your fucking life because there are people that would trade for it in a heartbeat.

Or don't value it, but don't get all defensive when someone who actively is dying gets pissed off at you.

@LadyAlyxandrea where is your respect for @nvrnuff choice to medicate or not. He's not saying anything like what you're projecting onto him, get a grip this is an attack for him saying he's living his life and dying on his own terms.

@psycheworks hes free to live and die on his terms. And I'm free to be offended and angry about it. It's too bad selfish toddlers that would rather die than take a fucking pill can't transfer the years they could have had to people who actually want to live despite everything.

@LadyAlyxandrea You know NOTHING of my life.

@psycheworks Thank you

@nvrnuff you're welcome, she sounds like my ex husband, no empathy except for herself.

@psycheworks Not sure where all that was coming from, I've never had any issues with her before.
