Three Hours

May 31, 2011

That’s as long as I can go without taking a pill.  It drives me nuts, because I never remember to take a pill until  it’s too late.  That’s when the one I last took  is wearing off.  I get stiff; moving  just becomes difficult.  I begin to lose my balance; of course it’s not too good to start with.  I become weak; the slightest effort tires me.  My words get jumbled; it becomes difficult to express myself.  I can’t move my left arm and my left foot starts to drag.   I limp around like I’m a Frankenstein monster.

Three hours.  It goes by in a flash.  One moment I’m feeling fine, the next I’m wondering what’s going on.

“Oh yeah, I’ve got to take my pill.  I should have taken it an hour ago.”

And then it takes 45 minutes for the pill to kick in.

I’m not complaining.  A good friend has leukemia.  Now that’s someone with something to complain about.  But they never do.

So I try to remember to take my pills on time and think I really don’t have it so bad.

And I hope my friend gets better.
