Silly me!

I have a real problem remembering to take medication...I always plan to take it at the same time every night...but sometimes I just forget!

I'd been doing so well with my new meds...til last night...and I paid for it!

Forgot to take my Prami and it was a bit too late to take it as it has to be 2hrs before bed...I remembered at 11pm!

I took the amitryptoline and went to bed, straight to sleep and woke up at 3am with my RLS in full swing...neck and shoulders back is agony although that will ease during the day...and my left ankle is really sore...:(

I'm thinking about having "TAKE MEDS" tattooed to my hand!

Oh no, if I have to take 3 I'm ruined!

thanks for the hugs x


I do this quite often and i always remeber in bed when i have woke up in agony, then all i do is kepp waking until i get up. I am then useless for doing anything the next day.

I take so many at bed time i forget which one i actually have taken lol.

Hope your pain gets better through the day, early night for you and DONT FORGET YOUR TABLETS lol.
