Social gatherings: have fun, visit with people, eat good food… Tonight is the big Christmas party. I think I can manage to avoid shaking hands with people, but I still haven’t figured out how to take a handful of pills inconspicuously.
- Taking them before we leave home would be too early.
- Taking them after we return home would be too late.
- Hiding in the bathroom has been suggested. No. Ick. I’m not taking a drink into the bathroom.
- Skipping my evening meds completely probably isn’t a good idea, either.
Most of them have to be taken with food, lest they chew a hole in my stomach, and that means sometime during hors d’oeuvres or supper. If I end up with an ulcer, I’d be forever disqualified from NSAIDs – they make a difference, so I want the option of taking them – thus I’m careful about taking these things with food.
I’m not self-centered enough to think that everyone will be watching me, but my husband and I will be fairly visible and there are times that isn’t so nice.
Suggestions on ways to remain invisible while taking pills in public would be greatly appreciated.
