I slept through the first four hours of my first dose monitoring, so I am completely convinced I am on the placebo. I would say I slept soundly, except the cardiologist assigned to monitor me kept coming in and taking my blood pressure every hour.
At noon he told me that they would be getting my lunch for me. "So, do you want a roast beef sandwich or chicken salad sandwich?"
"Chicken salad," I decided, forgetting for a moment he was a cardiologist.
Oh, screw you and your good eating habits. "Why yes, thank you."
"What type of cookie would you like? We have oatmeal, chocolate chi -"
"Yum ummm nom nom nom drool"
"Something to drink?"
"I have water right there - "
"I'll get you a refill," and he scampered away.
When he came back with the food I gave him a dollar tip.
(P.S. He refused it.)
