Bit of a worry?

8.01am Just caught myself sitting on the edge of the bed, finger poised over the phone screen, watching the seconds tick down till 8am, when the Medisafe alert will pop up with its maddening jingle that cant be ignored.

8am Up flashes the blue screen with the aqua button I have to tap to stop the awful cacophany.

My finger pounces on the first nnote. ‘Gotcha!’, I cry triumphantly, and the music stops. The tiny mariachi band sadly puts down their instruments and goes off for a tequila till they return for 12noon.

8.18am, and I still havent taken my tablets.

So I lied? Nobody tells me what to do. I will be the worst patient in the eventual nursing home.

My ‘grim granny gardening,’ look

Taking tablets now.
