Drug Holiday

     I'm on a drug holiday.
     It started yesterday, the same day I finally began Christmas shopping.
     I'm going to stay on this holiday as long as I can. Forever would be nice, but that probably won't happen.
     A drug holiday is when someone like me stops taking her meds. 
     Funny, isn't it? I laughed the first time a doctor said it to me, and quickly added it to my vocabulary.
     My doctor didn't laugh when I told him about my upcoming vacation. He was surprised and not quite sure how to react, so I made a quick escape.
     My chemical seat-belt was too tight, and it was trapping me inside.
     I hadn't slept well in four months, so I unbuckled to rest.
