I wish everyone wrote like her.

There's one thing I'd like to mention beyond that. I don't understand how so many writers conclude that opiate drugs create large pupils, and I WISH they would ask someone who knows about it before writing that opiates create large pupils. They don't.
Okay, so it's a pet peeve. I'm just tired of seeing it, b/c patients I've treated have insisted that I'M wrong when I tell them opiates create pin-point pupils. And it irks me that so many people keep telling me I don't know what I'm talking about just b/c every book they've ever read tells them they have large pupils when they're on opiates.
They have pin-point pupils, b/c opiate use turns on the parasympathetic nervous system, of which pin-point pupils is one of the results.
