Sixty-Six-Pills


January 04, 2017 - "Sixty-Six-Pills"

A glass bowl filled with sixty-six pills.

This represents just a weekend's-worth of my meds... and these are just the prescription ones. It doesn't include the over-the-counter meds I take for minor annoyances like aches, pains and allergies.

This is life.

But you know what? I'm OK with that.

There are many people with far worse conditions than mine, who need to take far more medications than I do.

There are many people with far worse conditions than mine, who don't have access to meds that could help.

There are many people with far worse conditions than mine, for which no amount of meds could help.

There are many people with far worse conditions than mine...

... so I'm OK with what I've got, even if sixty-six pills eventually becomes ninety-six pills.

This is life.

Life is good.
