Our conversation before going to bed last night:
Me: “Did you take your NyQuil?”
T: “No, I’m feeling better. I don’t think I need it anymore.”
Me: “You can’t just stop taking your medication just because you think you’re better. Those drugs are why you feel better! There’s a reason you were taking them in the first place*. There’s no shame in taking something if it helps.”
T: “Well, maybe I want to see if I can stay better without relying on medication. I should be able to beat this now without taking anything.”
* Seriously, in all fairness, the main reason he took NyQuil in the first place was to knock himself out so he wouldn’t keep me awake with the coughing.
