Lisa: comorbidity

Overheard in the movie theater restroom.

Woman 1: When I went to the doctor for my ear infection, there wasn't even a note in my chart about me being an addict. They could have prescribed me anything! I mean, there should be a NOTE!
Woman 2: I know, that's why I'm so mad I threw away those leftover Percocets.
W1: Hold on, let me take these real quick. [Drinks from the sink faucet.] I can't believe they gave me two 50s instead of one 100. The 100s are totally stronger than two 50s.
W2: Totally stronger.
W1: I told my doctor to write me a prescription for the 100s instead, because they're exactly the same, but she wouldn't. Like, I KNOW they're addicting. I'm an addict. But I have ANXIETY!!

Sorry, I should really be more quiet when I'm having this uber-personal conversations in public places...

What the...?

That actually is almost the exact same conversation that i heard in the hospital one time. So we were in the hospital because one of the missionaries had a problem and we were in the Emergency room, and on the other side of the curtain there was this girl and her friends, and they were trying to get the doctor to perscribe them some serious meds . . . Good times.
