Tomorrow, I get to spend 4 hours driving. To a doc who might be helpful, but I don't know. I don't exactly trusty him. *sigh*
Just got into confluence groups, I'm happy cuz this group is pretty cool. Any ideas on how to survive without coffee?
Had a good day, but was pretty jittery.

Wishing you luck!!

Ferretbandit, I hope your trip went well. I did the trip to Mayo, but we stayed overnight all 3 trips. No way I could have taken 9 hours in a car in one day. Let us know how it went.🙏🌼

How did your trip go?

It was okay, I guess. Basically, they said to keep doing our meds like now, but ask a pharmacist about ADD meds because I'm taking so many uncommon (supplements, etc) meds. For the most part, they think I'm petty okay since I'm back at school.

Ferretbandit, do you feel the trip was worth it? I mean driving 9 hours to be told they think your pretty ok since you're back in school.. Did they give you any helpful information at all? I hope that something good came of the trip, I'd hate to think you felt like you went for nothing.

Hollymarie, I take various meds multiple times a day. Some can't be mixed with others, and some have to be 4-6 hours apart from all vitamins, and some must be taken on an empty stomach early in the morning. I have to wake at 5 just to take some. It's awful trying to remember to take any with me if I'm leaving the house. And you can't take a controlled substance out of its bottle, of you risk going to jail with a drug charges! 🙏🌼

I'm not sure whether you notify them or just take them. I'll ask my daughter. She use to work in a pharmacy. But if it worked for you and no one's asked before, just go with it. I was talking more about going on a long trip. I'll still ask my daughter. When I worked, I use to just take what I needed in a small medicine pouch. No one ever questioned me. 🙏🌼

Ok thank you. ..when I travel I take all medicine in the bottles. ....just easier that way. ...I have a special bag for medicine. ..lol..never dreamed my life that would happen. ...keep bag with me at all times. ...as take pills all day as you know. ....crazy. ...going to my sister's here in couple of weeks. ..she will get education on my life. ....something I don't talk about. ..nobody understand the life we live. ..
