If you are reading this and you have a serious medical problem, I highly recommend you make it your mission to get to a doctor.
I’m actually not going to lie. The last time I went to the doctor, the doc made me go to the emergency room. I was in so much pain I couldn’t even stand up. I was in so much pain my heart was pounding and my chest felt like it was on fire. I was told to take a break from the pain and go to the emergency room so they could take some pictures, get a shot, and do some blood work.
Well you’re probably going to hate me for this, but I was at the emergency room for a few days before I finally went. I was in so much pain, I couldnt even take off my shoes, and the doctor decided instead to just give me prescriptions for pain meds and aspirin.
But seriously, it was so worth it. Even though I was told you could take medication and not get any side effects, it was the best thing Ive ever done. It was like theres no way in hell I would have known how to live on those pills, but I didnt care because I felt like I was getting better.
I had a similar experience to yours. I went to the ER for some minor surgery (they said I wasnt in a lot of pain). And the doctor told me: “you need to take these pills every day.” So I took them every day and I didn’t have any problems.I think it was because I had been taking them for a while, and the pain was decreasing at a fairly slow pace.
Ive also had a similar experience. I found out I couldnt smoke cigarettes. Ive already done a bunch on my friends. I didnt have a lot of problems, but I still think it was the fact that I was taking these pills every day that improved my situation.
The pill question is one of those “Why did I take these pills?” things. Maybe you’re not supposed to smoke cigarettes, or you’re on a diet, or you’ve had an accident. Or maybe you’re just too lazy to exercise or you’re just too self-conscious about your health. All of these things can make you feel like you have to take a lot of pills to stay healthy.
To be a pro athlete, you have to do a lot of things that make you feel like you are taking a lot of pills. But to succeed in pro sport you may have to take a lot of pills, too.
If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone. In our research for Why did I take these pills things, we found that about two thirds of people surveyed said they felt they had to take a lot of pills to stay healthy. They say they eat too much, exercise too little, or take a lot of pharmaceuticals to stay healthy.
The problem is that you don’t need to take a lot of pills to stay healthy, you don’t need to take a lot of pills to stay in shape, and you don’t need to take a lot of pills to stay in shape if you are not trying to stay healthy. We tend to over-attribute the positive effects of pharmaceuticals to the placebo effect and discount any negative side effects.
