Polypharmacy

It's now 2:16 am. I didn't take my pills last night. I have a stack of them for my "head." They call it "polypharmacy." I guess the moral here is that if you have one affliction (say, diabetes) it doesn't mean you aren't going to get another one (say, bipolar disorder). One of my friends once commented, after she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, that she had been thinking that this was her "big disease." Then she added, "You can think something is your big disease, but then it might not be." Interesting.

Off to take the meds.
