I've had a tummy ache all day.
So I didn't go to work.
Luckily, I still have some of my medication left over from when I had pneumonia (during Pneumonia Break
): ic prochlorperazine and ondansetron. One of them is for nausea.
My hospital doctor, who is young and handsome, prescribed me the first one (ic prochlorperazine) for the migraines I was experiencing during Pneumonia Break.
But my primary care physician, who is neither young nor handsome but has the sweetest staff of any doctor's office east of the Mississippi, did not agree that I should take ic prochlorperazine.
So when the nausea first hit me this morning, I couldn't decide between the instructions of Grey's-Anatomy-like doctor or regular-like doctor.
I Googled 'prochlorperzine' (without the 'ic') and I discovered that it is used to treat symptoms of schizophrenia and strong or inappropriate emotions.
I got really excited and immediately took the ic prochlorperzine.* Then I noticed the 'ic' part and re-Googled. It turns out that ic prochlorperzine is just used to treat nausea and vomiting.
So I've been in a bad mood all day ever since I found out that bit of internet information. However - I have a peace of mind for today and I will share it with you:
(from a book I read)
*Yes, I got momentarily excited about the possibility of getting schizophrenia.**
**Yes, I did believe and hope that I would somehow magically get schizophrenia from taking what I thought was medication to treat schizophrenia.***
***Yes, I know this is wrong (even though it feels so right).
