A Handful of Pills Can Get a Little Out of Hand

Part of the reason I checked myself into a psychiatric hospital back in August was that my meds were no longer doing their job. I was suicidal on a daily basis and paralyzed by anxiety, and I knew it. I felt it was important that I be somewhere where I would be safe from myself, and somewhere my medications could be adjusted safely. This is because medications are unpredictable. One major change in meds could take me from suicidal to happy, or happy to suicidal. Or anything in between.

Luckily we mostly figured out my meds in the hospital. I've had a few tweaks lately and it's made taking my medication more confusing, and I've been missing doses. That's not helping me manage anything. Here's my new system for organizing my meds. 

Before: my bathroom sink loaded with meds 'n stuff

 An old train case became the perfect place for all of my meds and viatmins. 
I've labeled the tops of the Rx bottles so I know what they are without having to remove the bottles.

All nice and organized!

Hopefully it will make it a little easier to take this lovely little pile of pills each day. Yuck. 


  1. That is such a clever way to organize your pills. If you have to take them, it must make it feel better if they are in a nice container, right where you can find them all easily.

  2. It’s great that you found a way to organize your meds and stay on track of your daily dosage. Another good way of making sure that you don’t miss any meds for the day is to have some pill containers that contain all your required dosages for the day. Anyway, thanks for sharing this with us, Zoe. Take care!
