Today, the water was shut off, so I had to wash down my anti convulsants, anti depressants and sleep aids with an old, flat, non-alcoholic beer from the night before. I don't think I've ever had a more mentally dysfunctional cocktail. FML

Or, here's a thought, they could have actual medical issues that require the medication and makes leaving the house difficult. Which, gee, anti-convulsants are used to treat bipolar disorder, migraines, and... seizures. Which it's dangerous to leave the house by yourself if you have seizures because, gee, it'd be awful dangerous to be crossing the street and start having one. IF there were even any stores within walking distance that would still be open by the time OP got there. Also, there are in fact completely alcohol free beers. And, to be blunt, your assumption that OP is a drug addict because they didn't go get bottled water when there were context clues as to why that wasn't an option, is really rude and unnecessary.

as GhostFox stated...the OP is on the meds FOR A REASON! How do I know? He takes ANTI-CONSULTANTS which means he is MOST LIKELY EPILEPTIC. and YES there are some A-Cs that cause insomnia and severe depression. How do I know that? because I am Epileptic and take the EXACT SAME MEDS, outside the sleep aids as I take those ONLY AS NEEDED.

I didn't realize the water company shut down your local stores as well! A few problems: either you didn't take the opportunity to purchase bottled water during the day, or you have a serious issue abusing sleep aids. FYI, "non alcoholic" beer isn't truly non alcoholic (there must be under 0.5% alcohol by volume), so you're still susceptible to drug interaction with the booze. Oh, are you poor? Boo hoo, go to a park and fill a water bottle. YDI so much. 1 (800) 662-HELP if you are popping sleeping pills recreationally.

Depending on what time this happened, OP may not have been able to go to the store. Maybe he didn't know that the water was going to be shut off in advance so he could prepare for it. And how do you know he's abusing sleep aids? Maybe he has them for legitimate medical or psychological issues.

You should have taken your meds with straight vodka.

agreed shitty situation op... sounds like you have enough on your plate op

You deserve everything that happened 100% for using actual money on non-alcoholic beer.

I'm so glad the beer was non-alcoholic. Mixing medication with alcohol is a straight up no no.

Next time you should keep bottles of water handy just in case. Non-alcoholic beer still has a little bit of alcohol. It's the same idea as decaffeinated coffee. It might be only trace amounts, but considering the medications you're taking, it's probably not good to risk it ((not that you necessarily had a choice this time, though)).

There are 100% alcohol free beers.

Well, at least it was non-alcoholic. They do paste warnings on the bottles about mixing prescription meds with alcoholic beverages, because the alcohol increases the sedative effects of certain medications.

Juice? Bottled water? Milk? Pop? Any of those would have worked too...

Why would you even purchase non-alcoholic beer? Beer does not taste great to begin with, add that with being sober, and you've got yourself a pretty sad time.

Considering the list of meds he said, I'm assuming alcohol is contraindicated
