Sunday Poser # 63

Sadje is our hostess for the Sunday Poser question each week. You can join in here
My memory isn’t bad for my age, but recently I kept forgetting to take the second dose of my calcium and Vitamin D combi.
I have to be honest though, it was making me even more tired than usual even if I did remember, so I’m back on the OTC Vitamin D which is a higher strength than the combi and I only have to take one a day.
Meds are Vitamin D, Multi vits, garlic oil capsule, Vitamin C and glucosomine with breakfast which are kept in the cupboard, and cancer meds plus ezitimibe for cholesterol at night which are kept on the bedside table.
Easy.  I can remember that!

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Why is it so easy to forget important things like meds? I do it all the time and wish I didn’t…

  2. After so many surgeries, adverse reactions to propofol anesthesia, intubations, comas and now fighting this blasted COVID-19 monster… I keep forgetting to take my Ginkgo Biloba (memory) pills! LOL

    I’m not at the point of having to split up my meds but I can see a time when I’ll need the morning, noon, and night pill caddy!!

    Take my vitamins in the morning.

    Thanks for sharing Di! A small aside; Vitamin D should not be taken daily unless the doctor has prescribed it. It can cause overdosage ( hypervitaminosis- D) you should get your levels checked to see that it’s not over the limit. That can be toxic.

    • Thanks for the advice. The doctor recommended 25 micrograms of Vitamin D a day after my surgery so that’s what I’m taking.

      • Sadje says:

        I’ve been given this advice so I passed it along. Fat soluble vitamins can accumulate in the body so getting their levels checked is advisable after 3-6 months.

      • Thanks again. Since my reply, I’ve looked it up and the site mentioned 4000 IU per day as a maximum. I looked up a converter and this equates to 100 micrograms. I’m taking a maximum of 35 (25 for the OTC and 10 in my multi vits) but I’m due a diabetes check next month which will include bloods and I’ve already got a reminder to ask them to check my calcium levels, so will add Vitamin D to that. Always good to know these things.

        You’re welcome.

    wish we could remember our meds! We forget them a lot! or my alters move them and get distracted and then they dont get taken!

  7. I have to sort mine out too. There are some days that I go and I see some of the little compartments still full and don’t even remember that I forgot to take them! 😅
