I’m not someone who is addicted to many drugs. I take allergy medication and a pill for my Rosacea. When I’m feeling crazy, I take an ibuprofen. But I do have a prescription for Ambien and it’s my 100% required drug for international travel.
I needed to catch up on sleep and popped an Ambien. That’s when the trouble began because I started Facebooking on sleeping medication. That’s right. I traveled to London, took an Ambien to fall asleep, and I still managed to facebook (as a verb) even though I turned off my computer before falling asleep.
It was a train wreck.
First up? I told a male friend that I was tracking his period. He sent me a private note and said, “I have something to tell you when I see you.”
I wrote on his public wall — are you pregnant?
He wrote back — how did you guess?
I said I AM TRACKING YOUR PERIOD.
Nice, right? Classy. True colors shine on zolpidem.
Then I sent a message to another friend out of the blue. I wrote, “I know your secret. You are vaguely Asian.”
What?! Holy crap, how can someone be vaguely Asian? And why do I sound racist on sleeping pills? Thank god this message was private.
So, uh, I am not exactly sure what happened. I didn’t mix alcohol with Ambien — although maybe I should. I will say that I really regret those couple of nights and I see my inability to stop Facebooking while on sleeping pills as one of my top failures of the year.
Obviously I’m weird and obsessed, huh?
