  •  Cheers to Friday (17+ / 0-)

    always.

    Thoughts and prayers and good wishes for GMB02 and commonmass.  

    Another unexpected death: a friend's father.

    Cheers to snow.

    Cheers to the first weekend since the end of October where we haven't been too sick to do something we were supposed to do.  And we have no plans!

    Jeers to not being able to remember five minutes later if you took the right medication.

    Cheers to not panicking about it.

    And cheers to all of us 'cause we rock!

    •  Word: Pill Minder (6+ / 0-)

      I have two.  When I first went on meds for high blood pressure, I forgot pills a few times, couldn't remember if I'd taken the morning or evening doses, so ended up skipping a few.  I bought a pill minder.  Then I came down w/ gout right after I had kidney failure, went on more meds for that, so got a second pill minder.

      Every Saturday evening I refill both pill minders after the last evening dosage of b/p meds.

      Once I got pill minders, I've not forgotten my pills..., altho I have slept late and took the morning meds late and occasionally I don't remember to take my evening dose 12 hours after the first one, so have occasionally been one or two hours late for that.

      Still, as long as I have a calendar and my pill minders, I can keep them straight and mostly take them on time.

      I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
