PILLS

Does anyone else feel rubbish taking pills? I have been observing my mood! It is like a defiance to the control of my own body, I actually hate it!

It depends. If they work I don't mind taking them at all. I actually look forward to taking benepali. Not tablets I know, but I'd feel the same if they were because i get great relief from it.

Hated taking dmards because they didn't work and made me feel like cack!

Yes definitely feel bad about taking pills. But what is the alternative? I try very hard not to take more than necessary. For the pain I find a combination of tramadol taken with paracetamol works to make thepain at least bearable

Love them! It reminds me of childhood nativity calendars where you open the little door and have different shaped chocolate every day.

Obviously I'd prefer not to have to take anything, and not have a crappy disease. I take way less drugs than I used to. Hopefully I'll be able to stop painkillers soon and just have the injection.
