Just a few weeks ago I saw a VA doctor. She was upset about my Cholesterol levels. So I have accepted the fact that MAYBE I need to be on the pill. After all at my age I sure don’t need to get pregnant.
I hate the idea of pills. I am convinced that Doctors over the world have become pill-pushers. I sometimes think we are over medicated. BUT if I am told point blank: If you do not take this, you will die soon. IMMA GONNA TAKE IT!
My buddy Sonny was on a diet of pills. Well anyway it was a long list. He and I talked about it often. He said, ‘Jack, these pills are all that is keeping me alive.’ I believed it. In a case like that I too would be taking the pills.
But did you know that last year more people died from adverse reactions to their prescribed medications (32,000), that is more than died from car wrecks (26,347). That is more than died from illicit drugs (- marijuana)(17,000). None died from marijuana (0).
Just as a side note, there were 30,622 suicides in the USA. Doctors killed more people thru prescription drugs than killed themselves this past year (2009).
Shoot, Prescriptions killed more than the 20,308 murders. Does that mean you are safer with a murderer than a doctor? Surely not.
But if it will make me feel better, cigarettes killed 435,000 and poor diet and inactivity killed 365,000. I quit smoking years ago; I hope I am better off. I now have a pretty good diet and am trying to be active (when Sherry cooperates, that should be ‘with Sherry’s help’!). So I may skip the big TWO Killers.

So I am wondering how they know when this medicine starts affecting my liver? How can they tell without unzipping and looking in? I will have to ask Dr. Whats her name this spring.
To tell the truth I don’t like taking this half a pill and am looking for reasons not to take it. Ha!

Thanks for coming this way…..
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
