Living Life with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

Alright, this is a short one. But it’s the topic currently on my mind.

Remembering to take meds.

I’m horrible at it, half the time. As in I don’t usually forget my evening dose, but the morning one is beyond me.

My remedy for this is I have alarms set on my phone. 3, actually. 8:30am is am meds, 8:30pm is pm meds and then I also have 10:45pm as bedtime (15-minute warning).

The catch is I usually use my 8:30am alarm as an alarm clock on the days I have to be up at 9, or I leave my phone upstairs on the nights I don’t have to be up the next morning. So I never actually take my am meds at 8:30am. It’s usually more like 9:10am or 10:30am. But somehow having that alarm there always reminds me, even if I’m not using it or don’t hear it. Go figure.

So what helps you to remember to take your meds?
