The weather has taken a turn for the better. Lets hope it stays this way as I have another dog show on Wednesday in the Malvern Hills. Lovely area of Worcestershire.

I put more
EBAY YARN up last night and will do some more today.

I awoke this morning during a dream I was having about John and I being somewhere or other and searching for my pain meds. In the dream I was close to tears and was laying down, barely able to move. We found the pills and in trying to get them open, I spilled them.

Guess what? I woke up. And guess what? I hurt like hell! And guess what? It took a while to get up. And guess what? I ALWAYS have trouble getting my damn meds out of the blister packs.

And Guess what? It is ILLEGAL for the chemist to give me my drugs in bottles. How f***ing stupid is that? The only way they an supply me with the drugs loose is in a tray of drugs, marked out in days and times, 7 days at a time. which would mean I would ave to go every week to have this tray given to me.

And guess who would be sure to drop it? So I carry on as I am and just make sure the dogs are not in the room when I get my drugs and try to pop them out of the blister packs.

And guess what? Broken pills taste foul!

Guess what else? I calculated that I need 448 pain pills every 28 days.(That's 8 of one and 8 of the other daily) I get 200 every month and I always have pills left over. so I am not doing as badly as I thought.

Perhaps, when John is there, he could open all of the blister packs for you and deposit the pills in an easy-for-you-to-open container? That way you get your meds and the pharmacy isn't breaking any stupid govt rules. If you're worried about moisture, add a little silica packet.
Too bad they don't make a pill dispenser like a gumball machine- push a big button, out pops one pill...

I was going to make the same suggestion as weregrouch. I do that with various meds for my kids, because they always get sick in the middle of the night and I can't deal with those blister packs in the middle of the night.

We have some sliding door type dispensers here, and they can be had one for the day or as a neat tower of seven (one each day).
they have five single compartments and I pack them once a week on a day I feel like fiddling with the pills.
Can not have this fiddling with blisters too often myself, and especially the membrane of the pain meds is hard to open.

I was glad when Effexor XR got invented. It cut the amount of medicine I needed by 2/3. And broken pills do taste like crap.
