How I'm Doing So Far

Spit or Swallow

Ok, ok. Get your minds out of the gutter. I'm talking about all these bloody pills I'm taking. Between the supplements I have for my adrenal fatigue issues, my thyroid pills, the antibiotics i'm on to help the ear nose throat doc determine whether or not i need to have my tonsils out, the supplements and enzymes that Dr Patti the nutritionist put me on and now the cataflam for my bum foot, my bedside table looks like a bloody pharmacy.

This pic is of the pills i had to take with breakfast. A number of them are 2x a day and others still are taken with each meal.

I have recently bought three different pill boxes and none of them work for me because i can't find one that has three separate sections for each day (each meal) and so can't keep track once they're out of the bottles/packets.

I HATE taking pills. But there's an irony here. One of my biggest fears about being banded is that I won't learn until it's too late and I'm gagging and pb'ing that I need to slow down and chew. I've always been one to shovel my food in and swallow. So why is it that I can swallow my food pretty much whole buy have to work myself up to swallow all these pills?

Ok, so I admit it. I am one of those pervs. When it comes to swallowing pills I am the same way. I get so nervous about it getting stuck, but it is a nevessary evil.
