Mornings suck... even though I am either in remission or heading in that direction.. Have had to ask the GF more than once to HURRY it up NOW. Luckily she is understanding. And I also am not sure about the water in the am thing. I have to take quite a few pills in the morning... I bring my water jug into the bathroom ( where my pills are )... i normally start taking the pills... then have to take a break to sit for a few... then get up to take more pills. I only count this as one Bath trip..... But it normally works out that between sittin on the throne and takin pills at the sink, that I am in in the bathrrom for half an hour or more. But then I am normally done..... only occassionally do I have to make a quick trip back.
