Performance Enhancing Drug

Now that David and I are retired and stay home a lot, people ask us how we get along.  Well, most of the time, we get along.  We are so glad we don’t have a stressful job and our home meets our needs.

David loves to talk.  Despite my lack of interest in sports prior to our marriage, I have learned quite a bit about sports due to his talkativeness.

For instance, my husband was watching an NFL game on TV when he suddenly said, “Look, that Indianapolis Colts linebacker has been suspended for four games because he tested positive for Clomid.  I just found out that Clomid is a PED (performance enhancing drug).  The linebacker was taking it in order to get his wife pregnant, and his doctor recommended it.  When she got pregnant, he stopped taking the drug.”

Clomid is a prescribed medication that David is taking for Low-T.  He feels stronger and more energetic.  No wonder the substance is banned from professional sports.  It gives an unfair advantage to those athletes who take it.

By the way, Clomid costs $11.78 at Costco pharmacy, but $40.00 at Kmart pharmacy.  Guess where David buys it.

    Interesting, learning about this drug. Nice flowers.

    Damned if you do, damned if you don’t it seems. I hope they at least got their baby.

    He is a frugal shopper. The linebacker paid much more for his in a sense, docked pay right on through to college tuition.

    It sounds like it’s working for David. I’m glad he has more energy. It’s a prescription drug, isn’t it? I hope he doesn’t have any unwanted side effects.

    Good for David. Too bad for the linebacker. Drug costs are one of our biggest expenses. We both take Celebrex and the co-pay is $300 every three months. I don’t know how anyone can afford it without health insurance. There are no other options, although I supplement with Tylenol.

    I am still sports illiterate and at this late stage of the game will never be any other way. I see a ball in any game and my eyes glaze over, though I do enjoy watching a little golf on TV, so at least Gregg and I can enjoy that sport. When he wants to watch football we have separate TV’s 🙂

    I guess, like a lot of things, Clomid is good for low-T; but bad for extra-T.

  8. Linda Reeder Says:

    Seems kind of unfair for the linebacker.

    You two sound great.

    What a crazy difference in price. It obviously pays to shop around.

    Actually i was going to guess K-Mart because David refused to buy those ink cartridges at COSTCO. lol

  12. Beatrice P. Boyd Says:

    We always have at least 1 backup of cartridges for our 2 printers for just such an emergency and now have 2 printers. We do plan to downsize to a single printer in the future which will cut down expenses…but we will stipp keep those backups. Do you think David will as well?
