One thing I hear often is, “You must take a lot of meds!” Well… yes and no! It’s really a matter of perspective. To some people, what I take is a lot. To others, it’s not much at all! Personally, I don’t feel like it’s a burden. I’m a lifelong asthmatic, so I’ve been taking daily meds of some kind for as long as I can remember. It’s just what I do!
Yes, it’s annoying sometimes.
Yes, I get grumpy about it and don’t feel like doing it some days.
But I still try to be a good patient and stay on top of my meds. So, without further ado, here’s my med box!
You guys! I am super excited about this. I am working on a very big project. A little while ago, I was talking to my therapist about how hard it was being where I am with my RA and lupus. Right now, we’re still waiting to see if my new medications will work. I’m not working. I’m stuck at home. I can’t go outside much during the day because of my super sun sensitivity. I can’t go out much at night because I need sleep. It’s a lot of watchful waiting stuck at home, and I don’t feel very productive.
The other thing that’s hard is that what I can do changes from day to day.
It’s really hard to have a routine when you don’t know what you’ll be able to do from one day to the next. Most of the time, I end up feeling like I’m just sitting around waiting to get better. It’s not very beneficial for my mental and emotional health.
So… I came up with something!
