My doctor already 'maxed' me out on my meds for hypochondria, he says. I guess 2500mg of the shiat probably isnt good for me in the long term, but there's just no way in hell they'll get me to switch to generic. I mean I've tried, man. Its probably because Pfizer are the gameleaders in this field, like the doc says, you pay for what you get, that's for sure!. So I've no choice but to keep using PlacebomolTM at nearly life-threatening levels just to be sure I don't get a catastrophic relapse, or as the Dr puts it: It's covered in my insurance

So a few years ago, I go to the doctor's office. A youngish nursing assistant pops into the examination room and begins taking vitals and asks that oh, so familiar question: " what brings you in today?" I deadpan "Well, my hypochondria's flaring up, so I need a refill on my placebos." She gives me a concerned look and then dutifully writes it down in my folder.

A half hour later, the doctor comes breezing in. In a smooth, practiced motion he opens the folder and begins scanning its contents. "Sorry to keep you waiting. Now what seems to be--" He stopped cold and his face contorted in confusion. It was...glorious.
