But it is true, it is sad, but I have some supplements I've tried over the last few years, and the bottle is right there...I just forget to open it and take the pill. I am not sure why it is so inconvenient for me.
My Vitamin D is ridiculously low...I think everyone has a vitamin D deficiency ..but mine was an 8 - I think normal is about 30. The past month was really bad because I was suffering from extreme exhaustion, which is one side effect of the vitamin D deficiency, but I think other things were at play. So the doctor prescribed a super high dose pill, 50,000 mg per week for 12 weeks. And I was instructed to take a fish oil supplement. I can't take something that large, so I bought Krill Oil instead.
I needed to make a good impression on my new doctor, so when I went in 3 months for my followup, it will appear I've followed her suggestions...so how was I going to remember to take all this? Alas, my realization I am an 'old' person - I sucked it up and bought the $1.50 pill box. And every Sunday I fill the boxes with my pills. It has been working really well so far, everything is handy and in one spot - I have to say I enjoy this system.
So while 'the pill' will soon be no more, the pill box, I fear is staying with me forever.
