I'm new to the whole daily medication scene. I take a blood pressure pill, zoloft, and a daily vitamin. But once in a while I forget and, rather than overdose, I just skip.
So to combat this, I started turning over the bottles when I took them. That only worked if I turned them right side up when I went to bed. Which I'd forget.

So I went to you-know-where and searched for "medication reminder". I bought this:

A bit large (penny in shot for scale):



I could actually use this as an underwear reminder!

Can you angrily demand a refund from yourself?  Or do you still have to call, get put on hold, and wait half an hour just to talk to yourself?

Today my stomach is giving me the fits.  Having my ultrasound Wed.  We'll see if its the gallbladder.

My mom had hers out when I was young.  She had issues for years.  In fact, I was originally gallbladder trouble.  She was almost 6 months pregnant before she found out it  wan't gallbladder trouble.  At least I wasn't a toilet baby.

Here's hoping it's minor gallbladder trouble.

Not that this would surprise anyone who has been in my apartment, but my pill case is purple :)

Are you secretly Marie Schrader?

It's rare that this happens....but I don't get that.
It's a reference to Breaking Bad.  Marie Schrader is the wife of DEA Agent Hank Schrader, and she has a great affinity for the color purple.  Hank and Marie's house is filled with purple stuff.

Oh yea. I get jealous looking at their house sometimes.
Anais is the Coolest Butterfly I know  ;D

Bravo, I wanted to post something along those lines but you did a much better job. :)

Oh, give me a break.   >:(

In fact, I'm sitting here on my break, after taking back to back dual chats all day. Not one person has complained about a wait.

I can't speak for the phone people. They deal with a...lower class of sophistication, shall we say? If they are taking a long time getting to you, it's because of thick people ahead of you.

Haha, sorry.  Was just making a generalization.  I've never had to call amazon myself, the search function has been satisfactory. But if there's no wait time maybe I'll give you a ring.  I'm in the market for a 3d printer...

There's a thing going around Facebook about kids needing to respect their parents.

Number one, it starts with said parent.  My friend complains about the daughter backtalking all the time.  Maybe if she had got out the belt and whipped the girl a few times it wouldn't have gotten this bad.

Number two, maybe the parent doesn't deserve respect.   I remember doing a psych eval in high school where it asked me those questions.  The counselor seemed shocked when I answered honestly that I did not love or respect my father.  How can you love and respect someone who is abusive and absent?

Agreed, but nowadays they run the risk of assault or child abuse :-[

My mamma whipped me, it was not abuse.  It made me a better person today.

There is a difference.

Why is it the parent's fault if the kid is a disrespectful little shit?  Why are you assuming the parent doesn't deserve respect?

if someone has to physically attack you to make you do something, that person is a worthless coward.

Like I said, it starts with the parent.  And no, sometimes the parent doesn't deserve respect.

I don't disagree with physical punishment, I just think it's horribly uninventive. If you're going to punish your children, do it right. Mess with their heads.
