When I Consider

When I consider all the pills I take, my health by now should be first-rate? My doctor insists my health is fine, and would improve if I didn’t whine; so to pacify the complaints I make, he prescribed another pill I take.

Really sounds familiar. When I try to get them to take some pills away, the docs say, "How are you feeling?" And when I tell them, "Fine," they reply "The pills are why." So, there. I do resist adding new ones, however.

When a new pill is recommended my first question is: What re the side effects (and affects). If they are worse than my problem I refuse to take the pill. / Maurice
