Prescription from my parents

My parents are no doctors but I instinctively go whining to them each time I feel weird and over-diagnose myself. Their replies and solutions never fails to amuse me…or elicit a facepalm reflex. And yet today as I sit slouching on the bed feeling sick, all I want is for them to be here and adorably nagging how it’s somehow my fault.

Excerpts from some of the times I complain to them about my pseudo health problems-

‘Dad can you schedule me for a root canal procedure? Got an impacted wisdom tooth.’

‘No. You should start brushing your teeth twice a day’

‘Mom I have been feeling kinda upset all this week..for no apparent reason you know? Guess I am falling into depression

‘It’s because you don’t eat enough.’

‘Dad I haven’t been able to fall asleep at night…I m considering to give Roserem a try. Its not thaaaat addicting you know’

‘No. Drink milk before bedtime.’

‘Mom my head’s been throbbing since morning’

‘It’s because you don’t eat enough.’

‘No. Do wrist exercises.’

‘Mom my skin feels so dry lately’

‘Its because you don’t eat enough.’

‘Dad I felt so drowsy all day today despite 8 hrs of sleep! You think I have sleep apnea?’
‘No. You didn’t have your coffee today.’

‘Mom my stomach feels messed up. Guess I’ll have a light lunch’

‘Why don’t you ever eat enough!’

‘No. Do yoga.’
