I used to write such informative, educational posts. Somebody googled my site for “decongenstants”, which I thought landed them at yesterday’s post. But instead it took them to the way-back machine.
I read the whole archive for the month and was generally impressed with my previous enthusiasm for the whole snot thing and diagnosing illnesses. Now a days, I’m just happy to get on my bike and ride.
This isn’t news to most pediatricians and physicians who treat children. OTC cold medicines are one of my biggest pet peeves when seeing children in the ER with colds. Yes, of course, I understand your child is miserable, but it’s a cold, it will go away on it’s own no matter what you do or don’t do.

If you are being chased by the cops, the best solution is to ditch your drugs and paraphenalia in the woods. But if you insist on ingesting your cocaine to hide it from them, it is far better to swallow the condoms than to open them and chew the cocaine. Inside of a condom, there is a chance it will come out the other end, and believe it or not, doctors can help make that happen quicker. WHen you chew it, there is no backing out…the cocaine is in your system. Eat enough of it, and you will probably die. But on the brighter side, it gives us folks in the ER enough excitement for a few hours and a chance to practice our heavy sedation pharmacy skills. So I thank you for that.
