Wednesday in Pics

This is how I start my mornings, after breakfast. If I'm sick or in a lot of pain (like this morning), there are more to take. I do this 4 times a day in order to take all of my meds & supplements each day (similiar amount of pills each time), on top of my 3 hour i.v. treatments at home every 8 weeks - and all of the other stuff I need to do every day to try & function as normal as possible. Some days it's really cumbersum and exhausting to live like this (today's one of those days) but it's part of the lot in life God has chosen for me so what else can I do but bear it? (Can't always grin & bear it).

My Dad has a similar routine as a diabetic. My Grandmother is even worse. I couldn't imagine having to take all those pills. I'm not sure what you are taking them for but I hope your body conquers whatever it is. =)

You are a strong woman. I respect your ability to cope with all that life has thrown at you.

The start of your morning sounds like mine - pills, pills and more pills! GAH!

Hope you're having fun in PA :-)

Hi Jo
Said from the heart. It is such a b----having to endlessly take medication just to get some quality of life. People say to me oh! antibiotics for two years that's so bad for you. Well compared with my illness Lyme Disease they have produced a miraculous cure sadly it has taken so long. Hopefully soon I will be able to stop the medication I can't wait although my specialist did say almost certainly my symptoms will returne and I will have to go back on treatment.
Hey ho! Take care and give yourself a nice treat to perk you up. Hugs Joanne

Thank you all! Your kind words helped make me feel better. It was a rough start yesterday.

Mandy Sue, I have Psoriatic Arthritis, an incurable, chronic, progressive auto-immune disease.

Joanne, I cheer the day you are med free! (That's not in the cards for me, but I'm alright with that at this moment, lol!)
