Note to self

Dear Jennifer,

Attempting to see how much of a tough gal you are only three days after surgery is a dumb thing to do. Yes, you do feel better but that is because you are taking the painkillers as directed. Attempting to skip a dose because you don't think you "need" it results in exactly what you deserve: pain and lots of it. Quit being stupid and take your bloody painkillers exactly as the doctors tell you to. They know what they are talking about. Besides, the drugs make you feel all floaty and happy.
