On Ambien

…I love that moment when I’m sitting here (unlike a psycho stalker) reading up on the comments in strangers’ Twitter feeds, and suddenly- there’s a slow Vaseline haze that creeps up over my screen and my brain and everything else, and it’s like…”Oh hello, Ambien…”

…and then I float over to my bed and fall into a pile of magic silk..and simply…float away.

(Based on a true story. Right Now.)

  1. I always wondered how would a bed of silk feel like! Hope you are enjoying the Spring 😀

    hahah i know that feeling. i keep some on hand although rarely use it except on certain occasions. . . . True story: I got up one day last week and I said Boy I have A LOT to do today. Took my thyroid pill, my blood test and my 2 shots and went to start coffee. Yessirre gonna be a kick ass day. So as I have a cup of joe in hand and speaking to my husband 20 mins later, my eyes do a womp womp blink. and then a couple mins later again. He asks you okay? yeah why? Yur eyes look funny. and then I remember I put my pill bottle in my purse when I was showing my doc the kind and dosage of the meds and it was still in my purse . . . so what did i take? yup. An 8 O clock Wake up Little Sunshine and go right back to Bed Knucklehead AMBIAN. effing A!! and after I took the REAL thyroid pill, that’s just what I had to do. Still got a lot done . . . but the day started again at 12noon. dang. :))

    • Hilarious, Y! I remember when I did that a year ago (you may remember- it was right after you sent me flowers- or maybe right before?) but I had a lot of schoolwork and I’d accidentally taken 1/2 an Ambien at 9 in the morning. 20 minutes later, I was accidentally high as a kite! Haha…yes, it’s funny that Ambien makes the eyes look really funny. I’ve noticed that. I’ve tried to look at myself (full blown on Ambien, before conking out) but my eyes are always little slits and sort of creepy. Not the best I’ve ever seen them! Heheh… I’m surprised you were up by 12. I would have been out ’til 4.

        well i didnt say I was chirper, but I had to get cracking. ahh, the Ambian cross eye. I found I was walking in my sleep on that stuff and that aint cool because the loft has narrow stairs. I ‘m lucky I was nimble as a mountain goat. Couple times, ny computer was turned on and I had typed some goofy gibberish. I only use it occasionly this days, in an emergency, coz it duz a number on me. :))

      • Well yeah. Stairs and Ambien might no be the best combination. 😉 It wouldn’t stop me none! heh..
