The Pills

The first med I was given was a steroid, Dexamethasone, to reduce swelling of the tumor against the brain, or so I understand. At any rate since starting that weeks ago I have almost no headaches or nausea. Temporarily, I can almost forget I’m doomed, except…I have to take those 4 little white pills three times a day. If I don’t, I suppose withn a day or two my headaches and nausea would return with unpleasant results. 

So I “survive” now not independently like most, but with a thin lifeline to little pills. My current prescription has enough supply for this week and a couple of days into next week. I’m not sure which doctor will renew it, since the original prescription was written in a hospital.
