Here We Go

All right, I'll be going in this afternoon to get the injection of platelets into my elbow, which a friend has described as "excruciatingly painful," so I've got that going for me.

Interestingly, the office phoned in a prescription for post-procedure pain. I went and picked it up: a bottle of Vicodin.

Hell, no.

Vicodin is terrible. When I take it, it makes me feel like a constipated, angry bear. Who wants to be a constipated, angry bear?

Not even a bear, obviously.

My friend said to ask for a partial prescription of Valium, which will get me through the first night and following day, at which point I should be able to manage the pain without any help.
