Self Medication

 

To some, simply an indulgent treat, but me... I’m self medicating.

Melting chunks tantalize taste buds, flooding from vein to brain

as cocoa kicks in and produces ‘feel good’ chemicals.

Neurotransmitters fired up and pumping out,

flushing blues away with

a mind

hug.

Being a diabetic who's addicted to chocolate I can identify with this!
