A Pill Popping Healer (Sometimes)

I have a confession to make. When I'm in pain, I have a tendency to reach for painkillers. A lot of the time it's fear of feeling pain that makes me go for the painkillers (I'm a wimp) and the past year I've made a point of trying Reiki for 10-15 minutes before reaching for the medicine cabinet. Not today. 

Sometimes you have to be practical. I finally boarded a 15-hour flight to Mexico this morning, just a week and a half after I sprained my back when I was packing up my flat. I postponed the flight once and couldn't do so again without overstaying my visa, so I went for the big guns (a blissful OTC combination of paracetamol, caffeine and codeine). Tomorrow I'll go back to stretches, swimming, ice packs, etc. 

To be honest, I never considered NOT taking the painkillers. Why suffer through a long flight when I have a perfectly good solution? I swallowed my pride (and the Solpadeine), feels wonderful! 

On a side note, this is the first time I have blogged mid-air :-) 

Take care,


Ps ... Responsible blogging: This blissful OTC medication can be addictive if you take it more than three days so I will ditch it tomorrow. Plus I'd much rather switch back to ice packs!
