Always Take Your Meds

Hi everyone! I hope you’re doing amazingly so far this week!

I had something written but not finished for today and I had planned on sitting down to finish it tonight, but then I started having withdrawal symptoms due to forgetting to take my meds for a few days (I didn’t realize it had been that long). If you’ve never experienced this before, I think it’s different for everyone, but for me it starts off like motion activated dizziness/electric shocks through my body which then turns to jitters and awkward muscle spasms which makes it difficult to function in public or otherwise. I once forgot to take my meds for 6 days and when I went to pick them up I mentioned to my pharmacist I hadn’t been on them and he said, “I can tell.”

I mean, it’s kinda funny but it’s also NOT FUNNY DON’T BE LIKE ME, haha. It’s definitely not good to do this to yourself. This is part of self-care and learning.

I had my refill scheduled to be delivered because it’s been snowy and icy but I missed the email that told me my insurance doesn’t cover delivery. And I can’t find my backups, oops. Tomorrow I’ll get them and all will be well, no worries!

My heart goes out to you if you are someone who often forgets their meds. It’s hard sometimes, no matter how long you’ve been regularly taking medication. We’ll get there!

Until next time, I wish you all the very best. Take care!

  1. ironic I see this now as I have also forgotten my medication for a week……. or two…..

    I’ve been telling myself I’d be less depressed and upset with myself if I’d just take it and get back on track but I just never remember, especially at work, especially when I’m in the middle of doing anything. So I completely feel you on this.

    1. I hope you’re able to get back on track soon, but I can absolutely relate. You will definitely feel much better – and if not super better, at the very least balanced once you get that back in your routine. Remembering is seriously hard, even with a fancy pill sorter and all that. I wish you the best, I really hope you start feeling better soon and I’m always here if you need to talk. One day at a time <3
