And the secret is...

...NOT taking narcotics?

As of this morning, I've started weaning myself from narcotic pain relievers. Sure, they help with pain (which is obviously good) but they make me feel woozy, shaky, lightheaded, and systemically awful. I finally decided that I'd rather deal with some straightforward pain than the systemic awfulness.

And I'm feeling a lot more myself as a result.

I'm taking Extra Strength Tylenol, and that's it. And I hope that as the other drugs leave my system, I'll feel well enough to go to church tomorrow.

My chest feels like hell. But that's better than my whole body feeling like hell!
