Once a week, on Sunday or Monday, I refill my daily pill thingies. It’s one of my most dreaded tasks. Why do I dread it so much? I’m not exactly sure of the answer because I often hide thoughts deep in the recesses of my brain, but what I do know is that it takes way too long to finish and it’s a reminder of sickness/illness/disease/limitations.
I keep the majority of my medications in that white basket, which sits on top of my refrigerator. I line up the day of the week containers and fill them. I spent about two to three weeks not doing that because I wanted to do something else with my time and not think about it. So I took the minimum and went on about my business. After running away from home last weekend I realized I need to get back to taking
good better care of myself so I re-started filling the daily thing.
That’s what it looks like (on the left) after all the pills are in there. The little lids come off then pop back on. Then I put the little containers into the stack thingy. There is only one pill in there that isn’t prescribed and I have one condition that isn’t currently being treated because it’s in remission. Yippee!

This is just a day in the life of a “chronic babe” … It’s also one of the reasons I have my womanly wishes. Is there something you do everyday, or weekly, that’s necessary but annoying? Do share.
