After being prescribed Tramadol for the pain in my lower back, I waited an entire year to even try it. After all the trouble I've witnessed and experienced with prescription drug addictions, I did not want to add another to my list. But the pain was great and there were things I wanted to do that required standing up so I tried one. Got some relief and no awful side effects. The thought of dependency concerns me greatly. Doctors hand out meds like candy. But, they can be so damaging.
I think perhaps none of this matters when put in relation to my life expectancy. The next washer might outlive me. Nearing that big 70 birthday in the next few weeks, I am thinking, wow man, that is really O L D. I think I'll get busy at something.
Autumn with her stark clothes of brown and yellow comes
I get melancholy for a while
Off to fold laundry
