2011_07_22 And we will wait a little more

So my PA called today, confirming that my meds are on their way to me. I will be waiting until I see her to begin treatment. I'm okay with that. I'd like to get myself into a few habits before beginning anyway.

One pill is taken every 12 hours and the other is every 8 hours. My parents have gotten me a new watch (if you know me, you know I never wear a watch) so I can set timers for taking them on time (important). Also, the Incevik (3xdaily - brand new pill) has to be taken with 20g of fat. I did some quick checking, and I can cover that by taking 3 fish oil caps and a big spoon of peanut butter. The fish oil is already a part of my diet, so I'll just have to take care of the peanut butter, caloricly speaking. By the time I begin to take the drugs, I can be in the habit of getting up to take the fish oil and the peanut butter.

I'm looking forward, in a way, to getting the meds and just putting them away for a while. For a few weeks, I won't really need to think about this and I can get on with getting my mind off of me. I need to focus elsewhere for a while.

Very sweet of your parents to get you a watch with a timer. It's a very good idea.
