Sherry...I'm sure I'm losing my mind as well...and the anxiety from that is really disconcerting. I do use the organisers..a great help...but there was a time a few months ago that I was just too lazy to fill them up for a week (being busy..no excuse) ad I was taking 2 URSO in the morning and 2 in the evening.
When I finally made the decision to fill the organisers I realised that the two I took out was to fill the section for only ONE day...one in the morning and one at night. It is a dosage that is prescribed for some anyway, but not me..lol! Thankfully I didn't notice any negative side effects. That's probably why I didn't notice my error..sheesh.
It's scary when we get to the point where we have to make sure we are totally "conscious" in thinking while we do things that were so automatic in the past. Having our heads elsewhere while we're doing serious stuff can cause serious consequences. I can relate when I fell down the stairs.
One time I do not like to have my head elsewhere is when I'm driving, it's easy to think of other stuff at the same time.
They say many accidents can be prevented....case in point with the small stuff we do. There are always other things to think about
at the same time. I often wonder if I'll be down the road of alzheimer's (which is in my family as well)..my doc chuckles at me and says "not any time soon, that's for sure"
Sherry...you have so much going on at this time...
