Oppps, I didn't mean to bribe yourself with caffiene that came out wrong. I meant to maybe bribe yourself with something you really really like, and couldn't get sick of, or something you couldn't live without, like haribo for example.
Lucky you only needing to take creon. I'm on soooo many tablets, I have to split them into 2 different dosage bits on my tablet planner, as they won't fit in one.
Do you get your creon in little pots still, or do you get the blister packs?
I always find the pots handiest, as they fit in your pocket, and are easy to conceal when taking them.
I suppose another reason I've never had a problem telling people about
my CF, is because when I was younger, I used to have all my creon split into yoghurts at dinner time. Right up until secondary school. My mates used to help me split them, it became a game. No one ever made fun or anything, and I did it every dinner in the middle of the dining hall. Eveyone knew about
my CF and knew the main things about
it. Things got harder at secondary school, as dinner ladies using to make such a scene if they saw me taking my meds. But I learnt to ignore them.
One thing I do suggest, is maybe getting a few small containers maybe like trinket boxes or something, which are easy to conceal. Make sure there clean obviously. Put maybe your morning dose of meds in one, including your creon. Then do the same with your other doses, each dose in a different box. Somehow write on them or something, to signify which is which. That way, allyou need to do, is keep them in your school bag. In lessons as your putting your books away, then pop the box with the next dose you need into your pocket. Then jsut take them out at the required time. That way, noone see's your meds. And you have one set dosethere readyjust totip into your hand and take them., which will be quick and easy.
