One of my prescriptions is a drug called Myrapex. One of the side effects of this drug is that it causes obsessive behavior. Whether it be gambling, drinking , drugs or anything else.
I've enjoyed the Casinos. I haven't gone in years. I don't foresee any possibility of going again. The thought of losing bothers me too much.
I rarely drink. I like wine. Red Wine causes me to overheat. So I stopped drinking it years ago. Every so often I enjoy a class of white wine. A long distance from an obsession.
Drugs never interested me. If I had one wish for myself, it would be that I never needed to take another pill again.
Does this mean that I'm not affected by Myrapex? I don't think so. My obsession is and has always been noshing. I've never met a Mallomar that I didn't like. Give me Haagan Daz or give me death. Four Score and Seven Oreos ago. This is the winter of my M & Ms.
I could go on forever. And I may if I don't stop noshing soon.
In all fairness to Myrapex, I always noshed. The difference is now, it's sometime uncontrollable.
Thankfully, I still walk a lot. Strange as it may sound, I'm 30 pounds lighter then when I was diagnosed.
Don't ask what your Country can do for you, ask what you can do for some Bosco!
