Meds issues – a follow up

I’ve taken the pills again today. With my lunch.

I’m going to try and keep to this régime this time, and have set up alerts on my phone, and my watch and all sorts to remind me. I just hope that the side effects do not restart.

In response to comment on November 17 post…

I am trying to learn to take the meds – but I really do feel much better when I am not on them. I appreciate that there are many people throughout the world that would love to be on the meds but I am not one of them.

I suspect that at the heart of all of this is an attempt at denial of having the virus: an attempt to make it all go away by ignoring it. Obvioiusly, deep down I know that this is not sensible, but just right now, I am finding it difficult to deal with it. Thank you for your comments anyway, they have prompted me into taking the meds again today.

  1. It’s easy for some people to say “just take your pills and stop whining”. I couldn’t tolerate them either and found out I didn’t need them.

    Seems that Everyone is an expert, yet no one knows what’s really going on with this disease.

    What is your own body telling you if you feel better without them?

    Your commenter is right about one thing: the choice is yours, and there are choices. Best wishes to you.

  2. Good luck with the new regime! I hope it’s working.
    @ Jonathan: sometimes my body tells me another beer is a really good idea. Quite often it’s wrong! “My body knows what’s good for me” isn’t always true (similarly, sometimes it’s a good plan to go to the dentist: but it doesn’t usually feel like it. Not to me, anyway).
