Dexamethasone (.75mg, oral pill): Today, for the first time in my life, I experienced what I was told was heartburn.
I always imagined heartburn, well, burning.
Instead, I felt a steady pressure on my breastbone and a dull, aching sensation. It certainly wasn't pleasant, but it wasn't crippling, either. Just uncomfortable, and nothing a few Tums couldn't fix.
And since I've never felt it before, I'm blaming the little blue pill.
Lupron (10units, subQ injection): Just like this same time last year, we left town for the Invasion, a sort of state youth rally for our northern California churches. But unlike last year, I'm a week behind schedule, so I wasn't forced to give myself several stim injections while hiding in an industrial fridge during services, panicking when I thoroughly botched my first Luveris shot and had to call my doctor after hours.
But I did have to shoot up my lupron injection in the corner of the hotel room early in the morning before anyone realized what I was doing.
Not quite as exciting, but adventurous, nonetheless.
Hold me still, Lord, and show me Your mercy when I need it the most,
