The Plague and its Mind Altering Capabilities

27 Feb

OK, so something weird happened to me a few weeks ago. I reached into my handbag to grab my blood testing kit (trying to transform from the world’s worst diabetic to just a middle of the road, can’t touch this type of diabetic) and out came a bar of galaxy. My favourite chocolate. This may not seem weird but I am fighting the flab and the sugar, and rarely buy chocolate. Where had this come from?

I asked Emma, as id been living with her, if she had snuck it in there? No, she replied, she would have eaten it rather than smuggled it into my bag. So the mystery continued.

The day before I had been really poorly. I still didn’t feel much better, but my head was no longer swimming and nor was my nose running all over the place. I went to the car and realised that my fuel light was no longer on, and upon further investigation I had a receipt for petrol in my wallet. So I had clearly gone to the petrol station to fill up, and checking on the receipt, it was me who had bought the galaxy bar.

This worries me immensely.

I do not remember getting petrol. I do no remember buying chocolate. I remember leaving work (slightly late) and going home. I then remember Emma coming home, and that’s it. How powerful are these cold and flu drugs?! I was tucked up like a kid on Christmas Eve before half nine, and woke the next morning feeling groggy; walking into things for the morning and generally feeling an air of malheureuse.

I’m going to check the label before I take them next time. Maybe the warnings that you shouldn’t operate heavy machinery after taking them are justified!!!

    I’ve had moments like that myself, but I can honestly say that I’ve never purchased chocolate without remembering I did it.

    Watch those cold medicines… some of them will get ya!!

    I have a BIG wall clock in my bedroom which gives Date, Time, Temperature and Day Of The Week so I don’t forget.

    I also have a home weatherstation receiver unit in my living room which gives the same information as well as the outside temperature.


    I race on a PS3 playing a game called ‘Motor Storm – Pacific Rift’ and I often can’t remember what vehicle I raced in and at what time of day.

    I have to write everything down when working on my PC or I forget and have three wall planners so I don’t miss any important appointments.


    On the plus side I’m now 50 so I have much more of this to come…

    READ THE INSTRUCTIONS on ALL medication – otherwise you’ll be in serious trouble if you mix the meds or take them more often than prescribed!!!

    Love and – erm – hugs.

    God Bless

    Erm – what was my name? Oh Yeah – Prenin.

    I am just getting over a bout of Bronchitis and in the last few weeks have taken: Nyquil, Robitussin, Prednisone, Ventinol and Zithromax. Most days, I ran about in a complete fog and the side effects of the medication, headache, coughing, dry mouth made me feel like it would never end. I did not feel better until I stopped them all. Go figure. The cure can kill you man :). You are so not ALONE. Hope you’re on the mend…

    That’s crazy! Yes, don’t you love when you can’t recall doing something. I always insist it’s someone else’s fault. Why are my keys in the refrigerator? Who put them there? (accusing my 5 year old- can’t possibly be me!)
