considering today is only day three of the shred i'm still how you say, sore.
so this morning as i literally rolled out of bed because it hurt to bend and or use any muscle in my body i popped an aleve to try to suppress the pain and i limped to the shower.
hours later i think taking the aleve was a complete joke - zero pain relief.
which is continuing to prove my point that i have been stating for years that no over the counter pain medicine works for me other than advil (ibuprofen).
there's a bit of a back story to this theory of mine though, you see my mother is a pill pusher - but not the good kind of pills.
she pushes excedrin which she believes is a "MIRACLE DRUG!"
to my mother excedrin is the cure for everything...
have a headache (THIS BIG!) obviously it's going to scream for excedrin
tired? my mom tells me to take an excedrin (because there's caffeine in it!)
hungover? take an excedrin
stub your toe? excedrin
leg amputation? excedrin
they must pay the woman money for how much she pushes it on people.
but to me taking an excedrin is like popping a smartie, a pez or eating a jelly bean - it does absolutely nothing but increase my chance for a cavity. i've told my mom that it doesn't work for me FOR YEARS but she refuses to believe it.
she has drank the excedrin kool-aid - the woman doesn't stop.
but then again i've drunk the advil/ibuprofen kool-aid - it's my goto drug. i seriously think i'm immune to every other OTC pain reliever. i don't even know why i bother to take anything other than advil - it's a waste.
maybe i'm doing something wrong?
does anyone else have this problem with excedrin? what's your go to pain reliever? (and i'm talking over the counter here we all know "the good stuff" works...)
