Ed Perlmutter, Boston, Mass.; Diagnosed 2006
Making it part of a routine and a ritual of sorts has helped me to take my meds consistently. I take my meds at night, say my prayers and go to sleep.
What helps me to keep them organized is one of those little pill pour containers. Every Saturday, I take my vitamins and my cocktails and I portion them out for each day of the week. So, when it's time to take everything, I take them all together and gulp like 12 pills at a time. That way my meds are not separated from my other pills. This method is so much better than opening a lot of bottles.
When I take my pills and pray, I am not praying to Big Pharma. I am praying to science and praying for my health. I am also thanking God that I have these meds, because without them the virus would be spiraling out of control. Without them, I would be dead.
Taking these meds is like a diabetic taking their insulin. So please do not take the meds for granted and do not make a ritual of taking them for granted.
