Kinda like a craft for my disease swap. Recently I've had to start taking meds - 4 different kinds (maybe up to 6 by the time we're done). So I've been researching the side effects for them and some are humerous to me - like your feet may be more cold than usual - since I have "ice feet" anyways how am I supposed to tell the difference?
I'm thinking - prettyfied pill boxes, cozies/carrying cases for equipment, a humerous t-shirt to wear to the doctor appointments, silly things to cheer you up from the drudgery of daily pill taking, lunch bag for the meds that you need to take with food, silly (or useful) items to help with the side effects.
And since meds aren't cheap maybe 2 mediums and 2 smalls and you can stash bust.
You wouldn't have to list your specific meds or medical issue of course - just the side effects you are having if you are or the dimentions of your equipment.
Thoughts?

This sounds fun! I was just diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, so I take various meds 3 times a day...I am always forgetting to take stuff! Also hand warmers/gloves or something to squeeze would be great for my poor sad little gnarled hands!

That link is awesome! My Dad is a retired doc and he swears by dark chocolate as a "cure".

now thats my kinda doc. I honestly believe if choc was available on the national health there would be no need for seroxat. You can keep the milk choc dark allways.

I wanted to kick this one back into play to see if there are any takers. Maybe also add folks who are pharm techs and other folks that have to deal with meds on a regular basis.
