RLS. It's real!!

For as long as I can remember I have suffered from restless legs syndrome. Of course I didn't know it was called that- I normally called it nervous legs or twisty legs. Most recently have changed it to crazy legs syndrome, because it makes you feel crazy. BUT IT'S REAL. Despite some people saying it's "made up". If you had experienced the symptoms, you would know it's real.

I was given a prescription and it makes me very sick to my stomach. I hate it, but it does help with the RLS. I have been looking on the internet for another prescription that may be better for me. I found another, but listen to the side effects.

People have reported problems with gambling, compulsive eating, and increased sex drive.

OK, so the compulsive eating and increased sex drive don't seem that weird, but does anyone else find blaming a pill for gambling a little odd? And the last thing I need as a single Mormon girl is increased sex drive. My luck I would become a super fat prostitute who gambles away all her earnings. I think I should keep looking.

Once you got to the part about the "super fat prostitute", well, I lost it. I just did. I may have woke someone up here at the family's house. Thank goodness for your crazy legs.

When I read the title of this post, I thought, CRAZY leg syndrome Ang! Come on, I thought we had talked about this. But then I continued reading.

I think I know a lot of people on that medication that live in my hometown of Vegas. They werent fat prostitutes, but then again, havent seen them in awhile. I'm sure they are by now.

One time I went to go get tested for ADD. They tried to make me sit down and take like a 3 hour test. Needless to say, I never got my ADD medicine. True Story.
