I did something bad. Really bad.

.
How many times have I written about shopping on Ambien?  Ha ha so funny, I bought Mighty Putty and bracelets to give me balance and make me stronger, miracle vitamins God knows what else I can't remember right now.  Ambien and I are going to have to part ways.

Tomorrow I am going to have to spend a good part of my day (most likely) on the phone trying to get my money back from one of those "work at home" kind of scams that have a cheesy website with "As seen on CNN and ABC News!" across the top.  I could really be sick right now if I didn't want to cry more.


I had a feeling most of the day today that there was something in the back of my mind, something hanging over my head that wasn't good.  It wasn't definitive and I didn't know where it was coming from.  When I got home and read my email with the 2 receipts totaling something around $300.00 spent, I realized that had to be the bad thing.  I can only assume that I had some reservations when I did it and that left a residual doubt in my mind.  But I DON'T REMEMBER DOING IT.
  
I did though.  Because when I went to the website I could log in to the member section using my email address and a familiar password I use.  No one else could set that up for me.  What makes me so angry is that I know better!  I never would have signed up for something like that if not for the Ambien.  I know those schemes where you pay THEM to earn money are scams.  Straight up.  Good Lord. 

So yes.  I will spend a good part of my day tomorrow working on getting my money back, possibly filing complaints with the appropriate agencies if I can't, and feeling like a MORON.  Might have to make a belated New Year's resolution so in the future I can say - Ambien free since 2011.

Oh, man, that is rough. Darn Ambien! Why couldn't you just go to the kitchen in the middle of the night and binge eat, like everyone else?

But sincerely, that sucks. I am so sorry. I imagine that is is really unsettling. Thank goodness your remembered!

Thanks Jean, but it did give me an opportunity to use the Ambien walrus cartoon. Sigh-h-h ...

That really sucks. I have enoungh trouble controlling myself without drugs to help me along. Good luck on getting your money back and hopefully finding something else to help with the sleep.

I wish there was a means of flushing away all the c*** on the internet!

Man, Ambien sucks. Potentially losing out on $300 really sucks.

.. and I may or may not have given my recently refilled bottle of Ambien to someone else. If it's illegal to do that, I didn't. :)

Just had to Google Ambien.. we have it here under a different name.

Hope you get things sorted out!
