Keep Your Meds Straight!

As we get older, it often becomes necessary to take medication, and for some of us, more than one type.  There may be tablets for blood pressure, capsules for pain, any assortment of ailments.  It's important that we pay close attention to our regimen; Maxine has her colorful take on the situation:

Have a great weekend, everyone.

This is SUCH a senior moment! Kudos for again making us all laugh at ourselves. My problem is not getting them mixed up as much as totally FORGETTING them!

Nezzy said...

Heeehehe! So true. We had to get my MIL one of those pill thingies. She kept forgetting to take her 'memory' pills. Thanks for the giggles!

God bless and have a super Saturday!!!

So GREAT! I remember watching and feeling so confused as a little girl when my grands would take out or put in their teeth! Hilarious! Holly

Debbie said...

Geez I think I can almost relate to Maxine for God sakes! Obie (my Jack Russell) has been diagnosed with a urinary track infection. Every morning I take my pill, give him his pill and then his insulin (he's diabetic)and I sometimes get confused and think his is mine and vise versa! I guess I better have my coffee first!

Jeanie said...

Gotta love those senior moments.

Writing Without Periods! said...

So cute... in all seriousness, its important to have a medication record with you at all times in case of an emergency!

So excited to hear you loved 'Alice' b/c it's also a favorite story on mine, and I love Tim Burton movies. Thanks for the review.......Maxine rocks.

Eva Gallant said...

Erica: Thanks for stopping by! Come back again, soon.

Mary: It's actually so true, it's scary. I once got Hubby's blood pressure medicine and my vitamins mixed up. I discovered the error after I had taken the tablet! I was out of commission most of the day....sleeping. That sucker REALLY slowed me down. I had called the doctor's office in a panic, but he said, "no problem with one tablet, you'll probably feel tired." Boy was that an understatement!! I now keep the couple of things I take in a totally different place than Hubby's meds!

Debbie: See my comment above to Mary.

Steven: You have a great weekenc as well!

Angela: It's always good to start the day of with a laugh.

Marla said...

I can always count on you to make me snort outloud.

Eva Gallant said...

Respectfully: You are very welcome. Always glad to make someone smile!

CocnutPalm: Thanks for visiting; hope you come again soon!
