You see, it's what I do...
Okay, so waaay back in the day - when I was bitching and moaning about having to diet and exercise. What? I need to be more specific? Good point. Could be any post.
On my previous post, lovingly entitled Pharmaceutical Bailout, I gave the world yet another BRILLIANT solution to the problem with my fat ass: I suggested that science get on it and instead of just sitting back and allowing Ambien to let you sleepwalk, send emails or bake, science should make it so that the side effect was that you go to the gym while you were asleep!!
SERIOUSLY! How totally cool would that be?! See!?! I'm getting all excited again! It's STILL a great idea. And frankly, its probably the only way that I would go to the gym without bitching about it to somebody.
PLUS (as another added bonus, science), I would also probably stop harassing you guys (and Liz' hubby Dan whom I kinda don't believe is a real doctor anymore because he refuses to diagnose my made up Africa diseases via Skype) as to the status of the "fat pill" that you claim to be working on so diligently - which I also no longer believe you're even trying, because you've managed to find a cure for breast and skin cancer but not this? Fat cells aren't even mutating into shit, they're just expanding (exponentially if you're me).
That's just LAZY science!
Ok, I digress. SO, this is the comment that I received from a helpful reader:
The highly popular sleep medication ambien is used for short term sleep treatment only, i.e. for 7 to 10 days and it is known that Ambien is a prescription-based drug and hence should be used only after getting hold of a doctor’s prescription. Use Ambien as per the instructions of the doctor to cure your sleep problems and bear in mind that this medicine is likely to become ineffective if used for a long term and hence the use of this drug should be strictly supervised by a physician.
WTF dude!?! Does it SOUND like I have ever used drugs responsibly? I self medicate and rely on a combination of Liz's hubby, my mother and my new pharmacist on blogger. Methinks that is NOT gonna happen.
Just wait until he finds my post where I demand to know how I can get my hands on some Adderall.
