I hope you've reached the right place, and I hope that you're over eighteen. This website is for adults only. No, I don't sell adult toys or videos or anything like that, this isn't a porn site. But it is the site of an erotic romance writer.


If you're looking for a steamy read, long, short or in between, where the characters are all over each other, get down and dirty, than I can guarantee that you will find something here. I'm going to level with you, my erotic romances are explicit and graphic in nature, but they all have happily forever or happily for now endings.


Enter at your own risk!

Pills

I hate taking pills and used to do just about anything not to take one. A headache, I preferred to suffer through it, even a migraine. I'd simply shut myself in a dark room and sleep it off, even if it took a few days. Have cramps? All I needed was the heating pad and a bed for about an hour.

I remember having a bad case of strep throat or tonsillitis for two weeks when I was a teenager and I didn't even go to the doctor. But I did miss a lot of school. Looking back I realize that was a stupid thing. I should have told my parents how sick I was.

I still don't like to take pills, but I will if I'm in enough pain. Why suffer? And some meds can save your life. I take blood pressure medicine and a tiny baby aspirin every day. I don't consider them pills, I don't even need to take water with them they're so small. My one a day vitamin is a little bigger but I force it down because it's supposed to be good for ya, right? Still not bad, just 3 pills a day.

This weekend I invested in those miracle pills that are supposed to help your joints. OMG...a horse couldn't swallow them! And I'm supposed to take two a day? I swear, my co-worker asked me if I was sure I was taking them in the right end. Which quickly prompted me into reading the bottle, in case I'd goofed. For a second there I was hoping that I had. Have you ever had one of those long oblong pills go down sideways? I wonder if anyone has choked to death on one.

If they can make a pill so small that you don't need water with it, why can't they make all pills that way? Or even better, into liquid form. Yeah, I like that idea. Because I have a feeling the older I get, the more pills I'll need.

Thank goodness the calcium I take is a chocolate flavored chewable!

I hear you my friend...I believe most of us hate taking any kind of medication. It's a PITA and expensive but unfortunately necessary if we want optimum health.

I had to laugh about the calcium pills because mine are also the size of Rhode Island BUT the thing is that I've taken them for so long that I don't even bat an eyelash now (twice a day). It wasn't as easy to swallow them in the beginning.

Not long ago I discovered that the manufacturer now makes the same calcium in "Petite" tablets...you just take more of them. The brand name is Citracal (Calcium Citrate +D). Apparently enough people had difficulty in swallowing the normal size that they listened and made the Petite tablets.

Everybody's Irish today so Happy St. Patrick's Day to you! ~Nancy

I wonder what people did 100 years ago when there was only one medicine for what ails ya:)
