Home for my pills

Home for my pills

All I wanted for Christmas was a pill organiser and a kitten. (I always want a kitten but I never get it, owing to the disapproval of my current cat as much as to the fact that Amazon doesn’t ship live kittens.) However, a kind friend to whom I kept on complaining how I keep on forgetting my meds took pity on me and gifted me a rainbow pill box. (I hate rainbows, but I love the rainbow pill box.)

A pill box is a must when you take more meds than you can count on the fingers of your hand in different combinations at different times of day and night. It’s a pity that the pill box doesn’t have an inbuilt alarm to notify me that it’s time to get high, but at least I can clearly see if I’ve taken my meds already or not. Also, it’s a rather awesome pop of colour in my somewhat bleak home existence. Getting high was never so much fun.

    1. I like colourful pills and pill boxes. I mean, why not make pill taking more fun 😉 ? I load mine on Sundays. Requires particular focus – I don’t want to put my sleeping pill in the morning compartment, for example…

        1. Yes, I feel like a drug dealer when I open my drawer with all the different meds and start distributing them in my pill box 😮

    1. At my age, not every time is time to get high, I get high on schedule 😉 I read an article the other day that a goldfish has a longer memory span than an average internet user. So, whatever you make of it.

  4. Hope the pill box reminds you to take your pills. I can’t even remember to take my vitamins, doctor prescribed for lack of Vitamin D but I don’t even believe they work. You just never remember….

    Hope all is well and if you can’t get a real cat, get a stuffed one 😊

    1. Yep, I love my pill box very much, it does the trick plus it’s a nice decoration too… I’m still not used to taking so many meds, so I tend to forget sometimes, which shouldn’t happen with prescription medication.

      Maybe my current cat would approve of a new stuffed cat! She would tear the stuffed cat into pieces, I suspect, but as long as she is happy, whatever 🙂

    1. In my case, getting high is more like getting normal, as my normal is extremely low. If that makes any sense.

  7. Great colours, and it works! In Swedish, they’re called «dosett» 🙂 I have only ONE [pink] pill to take every morning. Still … I have to focus really hard on doing so, otherwise, a few minutes later I’m not sure whether I took it or not. It’s terrible.

    I’ve never experienced getting a high from a pill. Probably just as well.

    Have you seen the two, new, free WordPress themes? I applied one of them on hernibs.

    1. That’s quite fun to have a pink pill to take each morning 🙂 Most of my pills are boring white and boring round, but I have one that is square and beige. I enjoy swallowing that one more than others 😮

      Ridiculously, I check WP Theme Showcase each week and I missed these two new themes! Thanks for the heads up! I wonder what happened. Did they forget price tags? 😉 Also, where is the twenty seventeen theme? How could they forget to introduce their new year’s default theme? WP is getting weirder and weirder.

      1. Yup, here it’s pink — back home it was white.

        Yeah, where is Twenty Seventeen? I actually liked it a little. But I like the one I’ve applied to hernibs now … a lot! 🙂

        1. The theme you’re running on Hernibs is pretty cool and original. I was thinking of applying the other one, which is more suitable for me, but I’m feeling too lazy and uninspired… I seem to have nothing to blog about in the first place these days.

          2. I know, right! I used to blog every day, sometimes more than one post… But I felt like blogging yesterday and produced a post. Not one I’m proud of, but the act of blogging helped me feel better.

  8. I’d love that pillbox as well… Somewhat original, and very unoriginally cheery at the same time^^ You didn’t get your diva as a kitten?! Some day I’ll have a kitten… When I’m old enough to stay home and take care of one 🙂

    1. Haha, I think you’re old enough to have a cat now, and cats are awesome in that they usually don’t mind being home alone while you’re at work. I’m just on my way from a conference, and the cat was home alone overnight – she surely didn’t enjoy it, but I’m also sure she’ll be fine. And I’m glad you like my pill box! It’s a huge help and cute looking too!

      1. I’d surely love to but I’d say I’m just abroad too much for it to take care and be left alone so often 😦 It would not be fair for the kitty… Maybe when that so-called “family life” sets in I will be “old enough” to give it a go 😉 Haha, yes! And at least it’s cheery enough for its contents 😛

  9. I have these as well but mine have to be in the correct order: red, orange, yellow, blue, light green, dark green and purple. Really annoys my kids.

    1. I’m with you on this OCD thing as ordering things by colour. I’d order mine in the right order too, but unfortunately, they are already labelled with days of the week, so I can’t shuffle them around as I like.
