I'm a bad patient when it comes to my own health and i don't look after myself at all. I have many health conditions and i get so confused and forgetful when it comes to my medication. I seem to give hubby his meds and forget to take my own. I think its because i've got many health conditions and many meds to take and thats why i get confused to whether i've taken them or not. My health conditions are: Asthma, COPD, Osteoporosis, Osteo-Arthritis, Hiatus Hernia, IBS, Diabetes, Glaucoma, Chiari Malformation and i'm supposed to take 10 tabs per day and thats without 4 inhalers for Asthma 4 times daily, i can't keep up with it all.
I went along to the COPD clinic a few weeks ago and got told off for taking my meds for the Asthma, because they did'nt get a true reading. I was told the reading was fair but not good and that was with my meds, i don't like to think what it is without meds. I've got a new appointment next week, i must remember not to take my meds this time.
