Wake Me Up When September Ends

I’m sick again. Same thing as last time — which wasn’t even 2 months ago. Feels like there’s a tear up my throat all the way over to my right ear. I went to the doctor, and guess what they gave me? Lortabs.
Lortabs are a serious narcotic, but I swear every time I go to the doctor they prescribe them for me…
Skin your knee? Have a Lortab!
Sore throat? That’s a Lortab!
Rip the skin off your arm? You’d better believe that’s a Lortab!
No wonder so many people get addicted to prescription pain medication.
I’m not taking it. I’ll take a couple Advil, eat chicken soup, drink Gatorade, play lots of Zelda on my SNES emulator, read and sleep. That’s my prescription. I fail to see how narcotics are going to make me healthy.
I can’t wait for this month to be over. The last 2 have not been good, but October is gonna be fun!
