If you’ve read my blog for any significant portion of time, you’ve probably heard me
complain bitterly discuss happily my My Grains.
I had to switch medications recently, after the one I was taking started to make me bald, and decided, after being warned of liver toxicity or death or something (I stopped paying attention when he said THIS WILL NOT MAKE YOU BALD, BECKY), to check RxList to see what, in fact, I was now taking.
You’d think after being a nurse, I might have some recollection of each and every individual medication in the Universe, but you’d be wrong. I have a brain the size of a pea, and there are kajillions of medications out there. In fact, those wily drug people are always coming out with NEW ONES.
Anyway, for the three of you who care, I’m now taking Carbatrol, and using it as a migraine prophylaxis is an off-label use for this seizure medication.
For those of you who stayed awake for that sentence, here’s a cookie.
HA! Just kidding I don’t have cookies.
So there I am, patiently wading through the piles of ‘THIS DRUG WILL KILL YOU’ material, singing the Sky Mall Kitties song, when I finally looked at the top of the page:
Here, let me show you what I saw:
I could absolutely watch any number of videos that involved small creatures singing, but the very VERY last thing in the world I’d ever willingly watch was a slideshow about migraines. Or, for that matter, much of anything.
In fact, there’s not a single slideshow/powerpoint that ever seems to scream, “HERE AUNT BECKY, YOU SHOULD WASTE TEN MINUTES OF YOUR LIFE WATCHING THIS.”
So I didn’t. And perhaps I should have. Because now I’m stuck wondering what the fuck was ON that damn slideshow.
Instead (lucky Pranksters) I made you what SHOULD have been on this slideshow.
Now THAT slideshow? I would watch.
