Got my first shipment from my mail order pharmacy and when I got home from work, there were 900 pills waiting for me in my mail box today. shocked shocked

900!!! There are so many of them! Did not realize that's how many pills I take in 3 months.

Wow...still waiting for that shock to wear off from all those pills!! I don't even have a place to store them all! tongue

Everytime I fill my Prilosec or Asacol I get like a jillion bottles of each. I have a spare drawer in my spare room that I have to store the extra bottles in. It is crazy the amount of pills we have to take, isn't it?? Hugs!

LOL, I get packages like that. In one shipment each and every Asacol pill was individually wrapped. That was fun!

I remember when I first filled Pentasa in a 3 month prescription...it shocked me to see the number of pills I'd take just from that one prescription in 3 months!!! I take many less now, but I'd be curious to see how many pills I've taken in my lifetime (so far...). I'm sure knowing the number would astound me!

I remember the first 90 day supply of Rowasa enemas I ever got (and that srip was for 2/day!)...I'm ashamed to admit I thought it was a little like Christmas! (it was my first experience with mail-order though, and I was only 18...)
UC dx in 1998 (age 18) - proctosigmoiditis - Allergic to Sulfa
1998-2009 Asacol 2/2X daily - very sketchy about taking it...pretty much drug-free for a long time.
Jan 2006 - Crohn's? UC?
Aug 2009 - flare - Mesalamine enemas and 4 Aprisos daily...still a bit sketchy about taking the Apriso once the flare was done
August 2010 - Flaring - Asacol HD and sfRowasa
8/10 - Doc dx me with Crohn's!
