First, she asked if it meant it was working if her head felt kind of empty. (Yeah, other than the fact that it's empty some of the time anyway)
Second, she told me that she hasn't been this relaxed and stress-free in years.
Thirdly, she said she felt she was floating.
Then, I noticed her eyes were closed, yet her knee was bouncing rapidly.
Dear God! My mother was high and just riding along with it. She did finally say she wasn't sure if she liked that feeling, being so out of control, but she DID state that she felt no pain in her back or her fingers, which are so worn from arthritis that some no longer bend.
I just told her it takes time to be functional on many meds, and this one is no different. I've taken it when I need pain relief for my back for about 2 years now. If it gets bad, I pop two and don't take any more the rest of the day. It takes the edge off the pain, but you have to learn how to work around it.
Is it mean to think it's funny when your mom is on drugs?
