Ironic that nursing school has made me not want to every take any medications. Ever again!
Heck, yeah I drink alcohol!! If Tylenol were as delicious and mood-altering as alcohol, I would drink that too!
That said, I eschew medications of all kinds. By the time you get to be 50, people have pushed all kinds of drugs on you "for your own good." We are no longer using drugs to treat disease. No, now we take all sorts of pills to deal with "risk factors."
Me, I'm not having it.
