used to happen when takin g afew meds at once. Pill organizers ROCK!!
now, only on Asacol if i get confused, its just taking a few more or a few less than usual which is ok in this case. nothing too potent or dangerous about a few more Asacol.

munchkindd - was on prednisone 8-9 weeks, then 6MP for approx. 6 months then and 12 Asacol a day through that all.
Now, only on Asacol.. theyre' gr8. its obvious that research went into their design. theyre tasteless, and the right size and shape and coating to glide right down. i was never a pill popper with ease, now, i take a mouthful and swig it down with blinking an eye.
Dx: Dec. 2006 with UC
F, 23, NYC
Thank G-d - Prednisone then 6MP, Rowasa and Asacol brought remission
Now Asacol 4tabs 2x a day.

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...

I already deleted the duplicate posts. I tried doing that yesterday but Hw was having some server issues I think and I was having a heck of time getting on.

You know Heather, that is what scares me - is when my mind is in never never land and I do this stupid stuff! Luckily I've never harmed myself and I always seem to catch my mistakes (thank goodness!)

I'm actually in the same place right now and when I'm feeling in that place I have to try to consciously STOP and focus. It's the cycle of anxiety/thinking/stress..whatever we want to call it..that needs to be interrupted.

You can control it....because I believe that when we screw up like that, we punish ourselves even more...creating a worse situation then we were in the beginning.

Conscious living...it's difficult. But, we can help ourselves by acknowledging that we're in a tough mental place at the moment, but need to try harder to remain focussed.
I think it an become a habit...and that's also the part that scares me most...I don't want to become like that. I'm trying to allow myself the "crazy" time and then get back to reality before I do stuff.

Easy? NOT!!

A couple mornings ago when I was already running a bit late for work, I reached for my house keys & realized (with that familiar sinking feeling in pit of stomach) that they were not in their usual place. Looked in 3 other likely places & then started to panic. When did I last use them? (I asked myself.) Realized it was the night before when I took out the trash. So they should still be in the pocket of my jeans that I was wearing then. (Rushed to locate jeans.) No keys in jeans pockets! At that point I really thought I was losing my mind!!!!!!! What else was I wearing when I took out the trash? Ah, my old Polartec jacket ... that's where the blasted house keys were hiding, in one of its pockets. Unbelievable how these situations 1st cause you to panic, then make you feel foolish. / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC ... [etc.])
