I've been hanging around the house, watching a lot of dramas (I just finished Mask and started Oh My Ghostess), and snuggling with the dog.
One good note is I can finally hear out of my ear again, and I can pop it. Yeah!
Since I'm always rather unhealthy, and take more medications than a thirty year old woman should, today's post is going to be about medicine!
This is for all of my fellow spoonies out there <3
Rather than one of those "what's in my bag" thing, I'm going to do what's in my medicine bag ^^
Since I like to be organized, I like to keep all of my things in this VS Pink bag that I got from the girl child. I've got a fairly large computer, so you can see a bit of the scale.
It keeps a ton of stuff. I think I have six or seven bottles in there plus other miscellaneous things.
(Note on the Walmart bottles: my Walmart is a terrible pharmacy as far as organization, but they have the best prices in my city. It makes me so mad that they screw up so much. I suppose I pay for the service when it comes to the savings I'm getting. If I didn't pay out an arm and a leg each month for medications, I'd kiss them goodbye and go to a local pharmacy. Unfortunately most of my local pharms are not at all cost effective and charge almost double for most of my meds.)
In addition to my regular meds, I have other things in there because I'm one of those people who always likes to be prepared.
The inhaler is a given since I'm asthmatic. Also immodium because of whatever the hell is going on with my stomach. It's a must.
I'm not sure why I have matches in there. I suppose they will come in handy one day. I may need to set a fire. Or light a candle.
I also like to keep a pen in each of my bags because you never know when you're going to need a pen.
The Reed's Peanut Butter Ginger Candy has to different uses.
Not only is it damn delicious, albeit a bit on the spicy side thanks to the ginger, but ginger is also very good for nausea!
If you've been following me for a while you know about all of my nausea issues. I like to have these on hand if I start to feel woozy and queasy, or if my sugar drops. It's got a very lovely protein count thanks to the peanut butter so it gets me as right as rain very fast.
Sorry for the blurry picture!
They are about as big as my finger and really chewy like taffy. You can find them at your local health food store, or possibly even at the supermarket.
So that's my spoonie edition of what's in my bag!
I hope you have all been well, and I will see you soon (hopefully!)
I know they have broken up but DWV has been on my mind a lot lately so tonight I'm going to share the song that is stuck in my head <3
