New Year-New Me Part Two: My Health part 1 of 4

As I have touched on over the years I suffer from severe arthritis and fibromyalgia. This is the year I begin to take better care of myself. I am going to start with taking my medication and vitamins. I have so many random things that I do on a day to day basis that I always seem to forget to take care of myself. After the rush of the morning routine I get home and often cannot remember if I took my medicine or be safe I usually skip it instead of taking a double dose. This usually led to me not taking my medication and having to muddle through the day deciding if I should take the risk and possibly double dose. I knew there had to be something out there to get my health in order so I began to search....pretty much most of my efforts turned up those day pill containers but I have tried that with no luck. I am the person that forgets to refill the days or takes the wrong day at the wrong time which through the whole schedule off (much like I thought today was Thursday all day-thank goodness my three year old knows better!). So finally I stumbled upon the RX Timer Cap-as their slogan says "It's simple. It's smart. It's about time!" So what does the cap do? It has a digital timer on the top that tells how long it has been since your last pill. I know its simple but it is a life savor!

Each morning now when I get home from running like a mad lady I can look at the tops of the vitamins and pills and see who actually got their medicine for the day and how much time has passed since they last took their pill. We especially found this useful for my daughters antibiotics. She had to take them three times a day and it was hard to remember if we have her the medicine with her meals and I never knew if my husband had given it while I was at work. This is a must have for any household and would be a great investment as flu season gets in full swing! Want to buy the RX Timer Caps? They are available online here and at select retail locations including Tops in New York/Pennsylvania and Bartell Drugs in Washington.
