I don't forget to take my prescription pills, but I almost never remember my vitamins. That's going to have to change, because I just got a call from my Rheumy. They took about a gallon of blood at my appointment, and one of the tests has come back that I'm vitamin D deficient. She's calling in a prescription, so now I need to figure out how to work it in around my Cipro.
At this point I'm taking more that 30 pills a day. I take them breakfast, lunch, dinner, and bedtime, so the timing is easy to remember. I have a notebook that sits on the table with all my pills, and I wrote down which pills and how many for each pill popping session. I don't really have to look at it anymore, but it makes me feel more secure to glance over it. For a while it was really stressing me out, trying to keep it all straight in my head.
I have a hydrocortisone suppository I'm supposed to use to help heal the incisions from my surgery, but I forget that one all the time. Obviously, it doesn't sit on the table with the rest of my meds! It's not painful, exactly, but it's more of a hassle than popping a pill, and I think I just choose to forget. If that makes sense. I hope I'm never prescribed anything that I have to inject myself, because I know right now that I won't do it. I can deal if someone has to poke me- I don't like it but I can put on my big girl panties and let them do it. But I don't think I could make myself do it. I guess time will tell.
