Hello jammers. FIRST OFF, I apologize for my coming by on Friday, the nervous and very close to deadline day. It's been a tough two weeks and I've changed accomodation from one place to the next and only have internet from time to time. Luckily! Today I have it. Hurrah!
So. I shall send you off with a rather medical theme. Prescribed drugs are part of our everyday lives, for some people it's what they live on, for some people it's just something that's come along on the way. In my short life I have encountered doctors who want to solve everything problem with a pill. Like the world is just a big pile or bubblewrap and whenever a bubble is burst it needs filling instead being supported to live in its new, lowered state. I guess I might've gone a bit too far with the bubblewrap, but I hope you get the picture.
The human mind is still mostly an unknown territory. Everything is linked to another thing, which means different drugs when put together have whole different effects. What is your view on prescribed drugs? Painkillers, sedatives, allergy meds? Anti-depressants? I don't want an essay, this is poetry jam. But you rarely see poetry on medication. And I'm curious.
I, for one, have been living in a spiral of anti-depressants, sleeping meds and sedatives for several years, asthma meds have accompanied me my whole life. I have terrible hatred towards any sort of pill. I fear it'll mess with my brain or my body in a way it isn't supposed to. So, if anything good comes of it, the hallucinations I get now and then give me things to write about.
