Some of the medications I take once a day, but a couple of them should be taken three times daily.
What does it al mean?
I don’t know.
It just seems like some sort of milestone – and not a good one.
We have vegans, vegetarians, and health food followers scattered throughout our family. I fall somewhere in the middle food-wise, but I’m at the top of the totem pole pill-wise.
Do all those pills make me any better? Ah, my dear Hamlet, that is the question.
Some years back, I was diagnosed as diabetic. I thought that was premature, but I have been taking the medication any way. My blood sugar has behaved all these years, so finally, I am being weaned off THAT pill.
Ten years ago, I had 35 radiation seeds planted in my prostate for cancer. Since 1991, I generate kidney stones faster than a chicken lays eggs. Combine the two, and now, urination becomes problematic, so I am taking a bunch of pills so I can pee.
Whether I have diabetes or not, I DO have neuropathy in my feet, so I’ll never give up my medication to ease that pain.
Oh, and did I mention I have panic attacks and I can’t sleep?
At any rate, it all adds up.
