For those of you playing along at home…


Sixteen pills a day.

Five supplements: a multivitamin, vitamin D, vitamin C, iron, magnesium.

Two OTC pills to counteract a side-effect of one of my meds.

2 riluzole. 2 prednisone. 3 gabapentin. 2 buproprion.

And then there’s the optional ones for anxiety and sleeplessness. But I rarely take those.

I am going to build myself an awesome apothecary cabinet for all of these and keep them in glass jars rather than the boring plastic bottles. If I’m going to be a walking drug store, it might as well be cool looking.
