    I'm not sure why I keep doing this, I guess it's stubborness. But I just HATE taking drugs. I take 6 different drugs a day. And I am only faithful at taking the ones that help me sleep at night. I am "supposed" to take take cymbalta, fludrocort, lyrica 2 times daily. I just have a hard time making myself take them. I know if I don't take them, I won't feel good. I know I could end up with a flare. I am a college graduate. I have a master's degree. I know that I should take them. Yet I don't. What is the deal? Does anyone else struggle with this?

    Stubborness is such a good characteristic to have, at times. I hate taking so many medications too. In fact, my son says "Mom you have a lot of pills". I wish I didn't have to take them. I know that sometimes I forget to take my pills as I should, not on purpose-my mind just doesn't work the way it has. I don't think anyone likes/enjoys relying on pills to make themselves be able to function normal.
