My counter is littered with the little appointment cards for the doctors appointments, all laid out in a special order. I think I would get extra bad points for disorganization. Can you be a disorganized Munchausen person? I think all these psychiatric syndromes that consider patients to be dishonest (and they're always women for some reason) say more about the sick depth of arrogance and sexism some doctors have (do we have a name for that syndrome?) than about the patient and their condition. What would you call that A******* doctor syndrome?

If only it was just a mental thing, we'd all be healed!
Love, Marji

LOL Marji!  My boyfriend and I watch House and when House et al are throwing around possible diagnoses, one of them always says, "Lupus?" BF and I turn to each other and says, "It's never lupus!"  My meds are in a cabinet arranged in rows by 1) Lupus meds 2) pain meds 3) maintenance meds [for glucose, bp, cholesterol] and 4) psych meds.  Next to all this are the weekly med boxes filled out once every three weeks. Interestingly, even with bad fog I can remember all this. Some things are just pounded in over and over...

Ummmmm. Good question. For me, I've got some in a color I hate, so when I have to resort to using them, I end up buying more rather than use the nasty colored ones...(also my shopping list is on index cards rather than sticky's) Probably some people have SO's (friends, family, etc) who help them remember.
