This new medicine I’m on has to be taken 30 minutes before breakfast and dinner. I had been remembering the morning dose very well during the week (I take it before I get in the shower), but when the weekend came my routine was off and I forgot until after I ate.
I have two new ideas to try: I’m going to put a sign in the shower so hopefully I’ll remember before I get in. This has a couple of things against it: the letters will have to be huge because I’m blind and also, I shower by the light of a nightlight. (It helps me feel like I’m still in bed and not really having to wake up so early.)
Should the sign not work, though, I have a backup plan to keep some pills in the shower. Food Sucker to the rescue! I made a skinny envelope and heat-sealed some waterproof pockets for the pills.
I couldn’t get it to seal after putting the pill inside. Turns out you have to roll up the end to get it inside the ‘vacuum’ area. Lesson learned.
Heh. All this talk about ‘rolling’ and pills – I wonder what kind of spam this post will will draw.
Food Sucker plastic is impossible to tear, so I’m attaching a clippers to it in case I actually have to take out a pill. Hey, as I write this, I think I have the sign figured out, too:
Does anyone know if that nail clipper is going to rust?
