Drug Doubts: Day 0

Over the years I have never overcome my doubt in the power of drugs. Though, my brief encounter with THC has been an exception. Nontheless, for years I've had headaches and despite my attempts to change my diet, sleep patterns, and an array of other lifestyle patterns, the only thing that has ever done anything for them has been Excedrine. Despite this, I still have my doubts and think that it's just a placebo effect. My headache goes away because I think the medicine is helping me. So I've decided to journal my soon use of steroids and their effects on me.

A week or so ago I had an unfortunate encounter with poison ivy which has left me riddled with pruritus. So today I got a prescription for methylprednisolone, which is a 6 day steriod pack. We'll see what that does for me.

I had a bad encounter with poison ivy when I was a kid. I essentially had it all over my entire body. It was so bad that I got a steroid shot from a walk-in clinic. Let me tell you, that shot was one of the most amazing things I've ever experienced. Before I walked out of the clinic I felt 1000 times better.
