I do not feel as though I have changed much in the first 24 hours of taking birth control. I had a blood sugar crash around noon yesterday which I attributed to being really hungry, but husband decided was the fault of the pill.
I have never taken many pills or vitamins. My mother would dole out the chewy kid vitamin variety to my siblings and me when I was little, but I rarely took a pain killer or other drugs. Heck, I do not even know the names or uses of many common drugs. Just a year ago, I was visiting someone and they asked me to read a drug bottle to see how much tylenol was in said pill. After scanning the 6-point font, I innocently remarked that there was not any tylenol in the pills. I was given a look and told that it might say acetaminophen. Oh. I did see that word.
Taking this many pills can be tricky, but with the help of an adorable prop, pill taking can be a fun part of your daily ritual. Every morning upon taking the first round of pills, I put everything left to take in this adorable pineapple bowl:
After I take my first round of pills and vitamins, I plop the rest in the bowl to remind me I still have to take them. Let's face it: I am a busy person. (Okay, I am not terribly busy in the summer, but life is more fun with a pineapple bowl.) I do not want to forget how many vitamins I have taken.
