Tonight, I lazed around on my big fat ass, curled up in bed, with my laptop on my lap. Why? Because that’s about all I could handle doing and even that felt like a huge chore. Most of the time I typed one handed on my laptop because I had to lay on the side of my body that was draining. Besides, I couldn’t see very well due to my left eye swelling to a closed position. Also, someone mysteriously stuffed some Kleenex up my nostril.
Here’s something odd.
Yesterday, on Boston Legal, a drug (Propranolol) was being described as a Pill To Forget. The theory is, you could take the pill and it would lessen the affect that a particular recent trauma would have in your memory. This is beneficial for those suffering, beginning to suffer from or might soon suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Tonight, on CSI:NY, the episode guest starred Nelly Furtado as a professional personal shoplifter who is currently taking Propranolol to “forget” about her abusive husband.
Propranolol is the same drug that has been prescribed to me for slowing down my heart rate when I get anxious. It’s a beta blocker. Odd, eh? Here’s an article on it.
