blush   blush blush I have had a very bad cold for the last few days starting to feel a little better.When ever I am sick even a little bit it makes me so tired that I can hardle get out of bed and I sleep almost all the way around the clock.I tend to foget to take my meds.It only takes about 2 days for me to start feeling like I want to cry for nothing and just plan down.What do you all do to remember to take your meds every day????I have read on here alot of times by alot of people that thay dont want to take meds. for the rest of there lifes.I was just wondering how many people feel this way.I just think of it as something I have to do for me and for the people who love me.Do I feel different about it because of how hard I had to fight to live and the pain that I went through after I hurt my self or do those of you who have really come to terms with this sickness feel like I do?Or is it because I have only been taking them for 11 months.Or is it because when I was in the hosp. and still in a medicily indosed coma thay started me on anti-depression meds. I did not even Know that I was on them tell I went to rehab to learn how to walk again.That was 3 months after thay started me on them.So by the time I knew I was on them I already was feeling so much better then I was before(this is a understatment).So I new what thay could do for me and it has never bothered me that I need to take them for the rest of my life.I would like to here from some of you what do you think????? blush blush blush

I have to take meds too.  The best way to remember to take them is to get a pill keeper. Get one that has a space for each day of the week. On top of each space that you open is a letter for each day of the week.  Keep this near you so you know that if it is Monday you have to take Monday's dose.  This has helped me a lot to remember my meds.  And if you need morning and evening meds get 2 pill keepers, use one for the morning pills and one for the evening pills. Good luck.

My main stressor is filling the pill box either Saturday night or Sunday morning. If I don't fill it, I am in a load of trouble. But I try to get it done on Saturday night if I can. Otherwise I am guessing whether or not I took all of my meds.

I wish I didn't have to take so many but I do.

Luv and hugs, Karen
