Daily Pills List


I never thought I’d need TWO of those old people’s medicine holders… But here I am, taking 12 pills a day, fighting old age and the creaks and aches thereof.

Here's the supplements I take on a daily basis and why:


Two prescription drugs - don't feel like revealing what they are. I'll just say I'm not having a sex change and leave it at that...

Ginko Biloba to help me remember. I guess it‘s working. I haven’t forgotten anything lately. I don’t think…

Glucosamine and Chondroitin - to keep my joints lubed. I get creaky without it.


Vitamin E to keep my boobs smooth and supple. I've always had lumpy boobs.

Black Cohosh to keep away the hot flashes, although it‘s been in the 30‘s lately. Maybe I should cease those till spring…

Women's vitamins since none of the food I eat has any.

Flax Seed Oil to boost my immunity. I can attest to the fact that this stuff works. In the first six months of 2008, I had the flu twice and the rest of the time, I had a cold. Since I started taking the FSO, I've hardly been sick at all.

St. John's Wart is supposed to keep me calm. We shall see. I've only been taking it for a week. Inanimate objects still quake in terror when I pass.

Baby aspirin, chewable, usually orange. Lots of heart conditions in my family, so I figure it can't hurt.

Calcium with Vitamin D for absorption. I'm old. I need to strengthen up dem bones.

Vitamin C for more immune system shoring up, chewable. The ones we have now should be in the shape of comic characters or something, they're so fruity tasting. Hmmmm, vitamins in the shape of Eddie Izzard… That might be a big seller!

C’est la vie!

I took St Johns Wort for awhile to manage panic attacks. It worked pretty well for keeping things a bit more level.

Be careful not to OD on the damn things since my SO did that at one point. That'll just make you scarily manic depressive. I'm talking going from giddy laughing to uncontrollable sobbing five minutes later. It was terrifying.
