Falling Uphill — Episode 12 — Running on Empty

Brian McCullough avoided even over-the-counter painkillers. But one night, aching from rugby and softball, and with a grad school paper to write, he decided to make an exception. The problem was, there was no Advil or Tylenol to be found in his house. His mother had a prescription, however. She was willing to share it. He may have underestimated its potency.
