I take approximately 20 medications a day. This morning I couldn't find my AM medication for my thyroid, which is the first one I take each day. I found an empty bottle where it should be and called in a refill. After calling in that refill, I realized that it was the wrong medication. I only knew that because after calling it in, I read the pill description and it was the wrong color and shape. I don't know my pills by their on bottle name, and I can't remember what half of them do.
I decided that I need a better system. Today's small goal is to take the list of medications and put them in a table by the order I take them with their name on the bottle. The next column will describe what that pill is for. The last column will have a picture of that medication. I will hang it in my medicine cabinet, one in my purse, and one in my bug out bag.
I took my emergency week supply out of my bug out bag and will get the thyroid med refilled and replace the emergency stash.
