My poor little pup had to go under anesthesia this past week to get his teeth cleaned (and a few pulled). As he was coming down off the drug that was given, he whined for hours and hours an hours, whimpering. It was heartbreaking. He’ll be on antibiotics and pain killers for a total of 10 days after his.
Not only has my pooch been on meds, I was as well. About a month ago, I found myself in the ER with an infection. The doctor says infections should be treated with antibiotics so he hooked me up with some. He also hooked me up with some pain killers that I became dependent on for a few days.
I know many people who take pop pills on a daily basis for headaches, allergies, body aches, and whatever else. Those of you who know me well, know that I RARELY take drugs – I let headaches heal on their own, and I let body cramps and pains heal on their own. In the ER, I resisted the IV, which frustrated the doctor. I kicked and screamed and said no to everything the doctor suggested. He questioned why I had even shown up so eventually I gave in….
The pain killers and antibiotics did their job, relieved my pain and removed the infection HOWEVER I feel like they messed up my system. I told one of my girlfriends about the changes I feel in my body and she says that she’s experienced the same thing. Gah, as I googled around, I realized that it’s a “thing” – that these meds mess you up. I should’ve known, and I guess subconsciously I did, but I have zero experience with it all. I knew I didn’t want that foreign crap in my body, however I’d never really thought of why.
It wasn’t long ago that my time in the bathroom was pleasant, not it’s an ouch-fest. I’d like to get this shit out of my body completely, because I’m not right. When I google around the internet trying to figure out how to re-regulate my body, I am falsely accused of being a drug addict – google can’t figure out what it is I’m looking for.
I believe I can treat myself and maintain good health with rest, hydration, and clean eating but I want to find someone/anyone with a related experience. Everything I can find on the internet speaks directly to addiction.
In conclusion, I’ve committed myself to being more conscious than ever to these few things:
2. Fiber Intake
3. Daily Yoga
4. Clean Eating (more raw foods)
I’m not sure what else I can do at this point….
