Word of the day: Ludicrous (thanks to Amanda of Wegohealth)
Aspects of living with chronic illness can be absurd or ridiculous. There have been times where I looked at the boxes (yes plural) of medication and vitamin pill bottles that I have stored and thought to myself - “how in the world did I get here?”
How did I accumulate a larger collection of medications than I remember my grandmother having? She kept a large box of medications on top of her refrigerator. (Mine are kept next to my bed.) I know that she had heart disease and diabetes. She also had cancer. I don’t know what else she might have been going through medically....as if that’s not enough.
So although I am personally taking fewer medications than I was a one point, I would say that the potentially large medicine box which we accumulate as patients can become ludicrous.
What’s the most ludicrous thing you can think of related to living with your disease(s)?
