Today, I had a very important test. Last night, I'd had such bad leg pains that I couldn't sleep, so I took two very strong painkillers and went to sleep pain-free. I apparently accidentally overdosed, because when I woke up, I couldn't see properly or even stand up. And I missed my test. FML

  • Over-the-counter painkillers are not strong enough to give you that reaction just by taking two of them, even if they're "extra-strength".

    So YDI. There are only a few possibilities:

    - By "two very strong painkillers" you meant that you mixed two different types of painkillers.
    - You took painkillers that were prescribed rather than over-the-counter. Sub-possibilities:
    - - You took painkillers prescribed for someone else.
    - - You took more than the doctor-recommended dose.
    - You mixed painkillers with alcohol, or other drugs (whether prescribed or recreational) without knowing the effects/contacting your doctor.

    No matter how it happened, you did something pretty epically retarded.

  • Taking "strong" painkillers without any prescription or control = not too smart.
    Taking two doses simultaneously or mixing drugs = pretty frigging dumb.

    Sorry about your leg and test OP, but YDI no doubt.
