Medication and medical aids
A very large number of diarists were taking medication of one
sort or another, much of it on a regular basis. For some it is a morning routine:
- 9.15am Had my cereal
and milk, toast and marmalade and tea. Took my tablets thyroxine before, and
soluble aspirin afterwards.
- Had a leisurely breakfast of Sultana Bran,
after taking tablets for heart trouble and under active thyroid. Also gave
myself insulin to keep my diabetes under control.
- Now I can put the Radio 2 on (Phil doesn't
like it!) take my tablets (painkillers for back problem) and have breakfast
- I prepared our tablets for the evening and
for breakfast the next day.
For other people they help out with medication for relatives:
- I take a prescription for my elderly mother-in-law
which I collected from Kington earlier in the day - she lives just down the
road from us.
an appointment at

blood is now too thin).
