A drug overdose happens when people take too many drugs than their bodies can process. Some people overdose when the drugs are toxic to their bodies. Some overdose because they take more than what is medically recommended. In 2018, I suffered drug overdose and if not for God…
See eh! If you value your life, be wary of over the counter drugs, especially those sold by people who claim to be doctors and nurses. Most of them don’t know what they are doing. The one that sold an overdose to me has been selling drugs for years. So it doesn’t matter how long they have been in the business, don’t trust them with your life.
If you are sick, especially when you are not sure what kind of illness you are suffering from, it’s best to go to the hospital and see a real doctor, not some quack ass who lives down the road, who prolly didn’t go to a med school or know the abc of administering drugs to people.
While I was in my final year in school, a friend of mine who graduated the previous year, came over for her final clearance. But, before she could finish her clearance, she became ill and had to stay a few more days.
Then, my kid sister Promise was living with me in school. And I had this tiny mattress that was barely enough for two let alone three! So I slept on bare floor the whole time. After a couple days, I became ill.
That was how my friend went to this so called doctor for drugs and oh boy, the quack gave her a triller load of drugs.
When I first saw the quantity of the drugs that this man said I should take in one dose, I was like kilode? Is it not original fever abi malaria that I have? This man must have thought I had a combination of all the sickness in the world.
I told my friend that the drugs was too much for a single dose but she told me the doctor said I should take them all at once. A costly mistake.
The drugs worsened the illness. Made me uncomfortable and restless. And before I knew it, I was vomiting blood.
I panicked. I have never experienced something quite like it. I was immediately taken to a hospital, where I was placed on drip and other medications.
It wasn’t until I completed my med that I felt like myself again.
*I want to specially appreciate my friend turned sister, Mrs Margret Okrima, who literally took me by the hand and walked me to the hospital. I am not sure what would have happened if not for you. Thank you sister mi*
As I type this, that doctor is still there, selling drugs and administering treatment to people. Hopefully, no one dies from his incaupentance.
Drug overdose or misuse can be deadly, please, be cautious of whatever you put into your mouths…especially drugs.
And yes, I am still writing. *Wink wink*
