At Least I'm Happy

Updated on April 5, 2013
Source

Oh...the days seem so long,

So boring and so drear.

The saddness in my heart

To my eyes brings a tear.


I feel so depressed

The joy is all but gone.

Perhaps it just might help

If I sing a happy song.

This isn't getting better

I think I should go see,

A doctor and get help

Even though there's a small fee.


He put me on some medicine,

He said would help me from being blue,

And lighten my saddness,

And give me a brighter outlook and view.


A couple of prescriptions,

I went to get filled.

The amount I was charged,

Was to my insurance company billed.

I took the medicine,

Just as I was told.

And within a short time frame,

I was feeling so cold.


Then I was hot and sweating,

All over the place.

My heart started racing,

With a rash on my face.


My skin started itching,

And my mouth is so dry.

The fever is starting,

And it's getting quite high.

Source

Sneezing and coughing,

With heartburn galore.

Constipation is starting,

And my joints are all sore.


Bladder control problems,

Set in pretty fast.

My stomachs upset,

Good thing the gas is all passed.

Source

Uncontrolled muscle movement,

And feeling kind of sleepy.

But heck that's ok,

At least I'm not weepy!


With all of these medicines,

I feel kind of sappy.

I may have a few symptoms,

But heck....at least I'm happy!!!

      Hi AliceFSpencer thanks for the comments and the votes! It's amazing how you can take medicine for one thing and so many other symptoms can show up. I still smile every time I read this! Oh....the joy of laughter!

      Have a great day and keep smiling! :-)

      Hi drbj thanks for commenting and your healthy tips! This really didn't happen to me. I got this idea from watching television commercials about all of the side effects medications can have on a person. I did this as a spoof on the ads. I wrote this just to be funny and add a smile to someone's day.

      Have a great day! :-)

      It wasn't your fault. My nerves are on edge. Lately any little thing sets me off into tears or a shivering bundle of squeaks.

      Happy is good, Field. Now we just have to get you healthy! Tip - avoid doctors' offices whenever possible. That's where many of the germs hang out.

      Hi Hyphenbird thanks for stopping by and commenting my friend. I'm sorry the photo scared you I didn't mean to! I wrote this just to be funny so I added a picture of one of my son's being silly. I changed the picture so as not to scare anyone else. Please forgive me! Have a great day and hopefully pleasant dreams! :-)
