I am always laying my glasses down, then need to read labels, and "where are my glasses"? am lazy and just GUESS at what the label says! So far I had gotten by fairly well, but last week, something got my attention!
For several months I had been using a pretty looking bottle of SOMETHING, as a lotion. One evening I had my glasses on and read the label, and it was BODY WASH! No wonder my legs had such a glow and Funny feeling! They lathered when wet—-but I didn't catch on—-
Well, that is just a warning of what can happen if not careful, especially in taking medicine!! I get a new bottle and THINK that I know what it is, but one can get surprised, and it might not always turn out to be a "funny"!
My dad suffered from diverticultis at times, and he ACCIDENTALLY took most of a bottle of Milk of Mag, instead of his preferred treatment of Pepto Bismol! Now one would think that it would take only a sip to determine the difference, BUT He was in such pain, it didn't register!!! But we didn't see him for 3 days as he couldn't get out of the bathroom! Later, it was kinda funny, but not for my poor dad——and worse could happen, than the "runs"! With our testy BS problems, worse could happen!
But it brought to my mind, to turn on the lights and put on your glasses BEFORE taking ANYTHING or Using anything, as it might be fatal!! And not a laughing matter! Pat Roth
