The Pill

Presumably, like most North Americans, you are currently taking some sort of medication in a pill form. Pills are very handy. They are easy-to-swallow solutions for everyday problems.

You may be taking a pill to prevent pregnancy, hair loss, or restless leg syndrome (also called having too much coffee). You may be taking a pill in order to have more energy or an erection; or both.

There are pills to make you taller:

There are even pills to make your “booty” bigger:

There are plenty of pills for every occasion.  Thanks to the scientific advancements of the 21st century, we now have the ability to suffer nothing.

If you have a headache, stomachache, or suffer from irritable bowels, you can find relief within minutes. The convenience is mind-boggling (please note: “mind-boggling” also requires a pill).

Pills mask what is really going on in your body. You may have a tumour, a pulled muscle, or an allergy to gluten, but you can carry on with your day. You can do all the things you want to do, without the hassle and inconvenience of knowing what’s going on inside your body.

Sure, your doctor cares about you. But he (or she) doesn’t want you to feel bad all the time, or keep bothering him about little things. He’s a busy man you know. He’s got a conference in Miami Beach to attend, and he hasn’t even packed. He doesn’t appreciate it when you continue to make appointments just to cry about nothing, and go over your ten-minute allotment.

It’s a whole lot easier for everyone if you just keep taking those pills. All of them. In fact, every pill that’s available to you, that claims to do something marvellous: keep taking those.

And if you ever feel anxious about taking so many pills, there’s a pill for that:

    Yes!! definitely thanks to the scientific advancements of the 21st century, but at the same time it is also not good to take pills every day even if you dont need it.

    But sooner or later it will affect your body and may cause sever health problems.
    Therefore yaa Pills are Blessings as well as Curse.
