Better living through chemistry

Dr. Grumpy: "How's your tremor been since we started the new medication?"

Mr. Shakin: "Much better, in a lot of ways."

Dr. Grumpy: "Can you give me an example?"

Mr. Shakin: "I used to have to ask my wife to unzip me to pee, but now I can do it myself."

Don't those success stories just make your day?

Can you imagine how much his life sucked before? I never realized that urinary retention could be a symptom that went along with tremor.

It's the little things...I remember having to get my little brother to help me get out of bed just post appendectomy. Independence is a beautiful thing.

I'd have thought that shaking the zipper would open it, but aiming after it was out would have been a bigger problem.

I love it when a plan comes together.... my husband? he would still have me yanking his zipper..

Talking about bladder issues makes me miss the days I had private insurance. I was able to have a urologist then. LOL. Now I'm on Medicaid (eeek, I know...they suck, ruunnnn!) no one accepts it.

Anyway I used to love it when Vesicare would give me constipation (which was much-appreciated with MS) and make my bladder flow. The little things that make me happy.... =)

I can't believe I typed that. Oh well.

Oh a.generic doc! What a comment! I have a vision of the aiming process before medication took effect.

"Sit to pee or I'll divorce you."

Thank God for Better Living Through Chemistry!

Wasn't necessarily going to leave a reply - until I saw the WV - mismesse!

Maybe she can now unzip him and do something else.

Now that would be a product testimonial that many potential customers could relate to...
