For those of you unaware of the amount of medically and psychologically necessary medications, I thought I would share this little tidbit with you.
I’m not going to focus on the names in this post because I’m just looking to illustrate something else.
Gavin’s on at minimum, 17 pills a day.
What you see below is a picture of his morning mess only. Believe it or not, this is significantly less than what it used to be.
We have been able to safely remove several medications over the last few years. His doctors have said that we have removed everything that is possible to remove, at least at this time.
What’s left is longterm medications that he simply couldn’t function without.
Several of the pills you see are related to the automatic issues and those are newer.
What I wanted to point out and give Gavin full credit for is just how well he does taking pills. He’s super awesome when it comes to taking his meds. He never complains and he actually wants to take them.
I hate the fact that he needs these meds but I’m eternally grateful that he takes them without a problem.
This is both a blessing and a curse.
