Going For the Drugs

Everyone around me knows that I am the all natural girl. I choose homeopathy and naturopathy over alopathic medicine all the time.

There are exceptions.
When I can't fall asleep (which isn't often) I take a Benadryl and within 30 minutes I'm out. Zzzzzzz.....

When my back acts up (as it often does) I go for the Ibuprofen and the chiropractor. A massage couldn't hurt either.

When my back completely locks up, sending me into body wrenching spasms, I go for the drugs. I believe that our bodies have the ability to heal. If the body can't relax, it can't heal. The muscle relaxer and anti-inflammatory allow the body to relax and repair itself.

Here I lay, all drugged up, posting for my dear readers. I hope you aren't getting tired of all this back pain drama. There isn't much else happening in my life at the moment and this is about as exciting as it gets.

Geez, I hope you feel better soon. When the natural doesn't help anymore you shouldn't feel bad for subcoming to modern medicine. I agree with you that the body needs to be able to relax in order to heal properly. You have to get better.....
