oh vicodin, oh vicodin, how lovely are your side effects

I wish I could express myself in pictures. I wish I could show you what's going through my mind. Because it's not words. It's images. Do any of you tend to think in images or colors? When you think of a certain person, or place, do colors come into your mind rather than the actual person?

I feel like being deep. Reflective. Intellectual. Ya know? But that's probably just the vicodin talking. Speaking of which--- I can totally see how people get addicted to these things. I love them. So floaty. So relaxed. So mellow. So weepy. Oh dear. How did that get in there? I want to knit, but I'm afraid my fingers won't do what they're supposed to.

I had a dream about knitting last night. It was a requirement for a job, that I could make a cable knit sweater. I bluffed and said that of course I knew how to make a cableknit sweater. And then I went home and frantically searched through my pattern books. :) I also dreamed that I was watching someone knit, and their technique was so sloppy. I tried to show this person how to hold their yarn so that it worked through their fingers, rather than falling through their fingers, but they just didn't get it. Of course, I cast on and knit in the European fashion, rather than the American fashion, so I think that was why I was thinking that their method was sloppy.

But I think this whole post is rather vicodin induced. I'm so lonely. I want to be in Georgia. I want to be hanging out with my long time bestest friend. I want to be where my family is. I want to live where I can get good sweet tea. But as my dear husband tells me, to pick up and move to Georgia is too complicated. Too many details. Never mind that I'd be a whole heap happier down there. It's too complex. Stupid vicodin. Stupid, stupid, stupid. I don't do well with staying at home, sitting on a couch. Forgive me.

Goofy vicodin gal! You're all dopped up it's silly, to picture you on the sofa kitting a sweater, but since you are on Vicodin...one arm will end up WAY Longer than the other because you will just get too carried away. Like a loopy knitter! TeeHee. Make me a sweater with all of that spare time, and I will get back to my 8 hour days in a cubical, not relaxing on a sofa. =)

Tylinal works just as well and isn't such a strong drug...I am surprise being prego you can take vicodin. It was too strong for me when I had my Wisdom teeth pulled.

I hope you aren't on those bad boys for too long!

It's a shame that your hubby feels that moving is too complicated. My husband and I have lived in 8 apartments or houses in 5 states in the past 12 years. It's really not that complicated. While we came back to the Midwest to be closer to family, I just KNOW that we won't be staying here. Cincinnati is a one Pharmaceutical Company town (P&G), If they ever sell that portion off, we have to go. I just pray that if we DO move, it is before Ella starts school.

Take care of yourself.

Vicodin Side Effects said...

My name is Robert Fraser and i would like to show you my personal experience with Vicodin.

I am 27 years old. Have been on Vicodin for 1 day now. Found a few pills. I'm currently not an addict though I have taken vicodin in the past and I am certainly playing with the devil because I do like the feeling it gives me. Biggest problem, besides the addiction, is Insomnia. Tossed and turned for two hours before I decided to research it.

I have experienced some of these side effects -
Constipation and insomnia.

I hope this information will be useful to others,
Robert Fraser
