You are a wonder, you know Rosie. I don't think I've told you how much I appreciate your kind words, your advice, your help.
I just thought I should
I'm not sure I can use the pill box at the moment;
Because the Epilim is controlled release over 24 hours, it breaks down on contact with air and moisture, so I lost a week's worth because the tablets split
open in my pillbox. Same with the antibiotics I'm on at the moment, and possibly the antidepressant, I'm not sure.
It's really upsetting; I was so happy about
getting that box!
I think I'm just getting a bit panicky about
the amount of medication I'm going to have to have for the rest of my life. I'll be seeing my GIDoc soon and getting the final confirmation of Ulcerative Colitis. That will mean a whole heap of meds for the rest of my life as well.
It's just a bit scary.
Though, as I just said to my boyfriend: At least I can have medication for both of these conditions, which is better than for my fibro. Trying to look on the positive side.
