Forgetful Pills, Automatic Recovery

RT Animated Adventures: Forgetful Pills, Automatic Recovery

In an attempt to make his life easier, Miles does something really complicated to help him remember to take his medicine. Burnie's older brother does something mean (surprising), and Gavin witnesses a person save himself from injury automatically.

    I hate trying to establish a routine and then forgetting what order it was all supposed to be in.

    For me, I just try to depend on me taking my medication being part of my subconscious routine at night, and rely on that if I can't remember if I took it or not. It usually works...

    I'm in the same boat as Miles. However, for the past month I've been testing out a system like Miles' but with a slight tweek. It involves using two distinct pill bottles, one larger than the other, I distributed the pills evenly between the two. When I take my pills every morning, starting with the smaller bottle, I'll take the pills from the small bottle then flip it over, then the next day I'll take the pills from the larger bottle and flip it over, this goes on for each day. When I see that the two bottles are opposite each other (the small one is upright and the larger one upside down, or vise versa) then I know I need to take take from the larger one, when the two bottles are the same way up (both are upright or both are upside down) then I know I need to take from the smaller one. This system, so far, has not failed me, as in I haven't forgotten if I've taken them or not, probably because each bottle is different enough to remember whether or not I flipped it over, plus it eliminated the chance for me to forget to turn the bottle over before the next day..

    When the guy in the last clip bounced off the ground and it went slo-mo I expected a GTA "WASTED" to come up.

      That's happened to me on multiple RTAAs as of late, but only RTAAs. It's the weirdest thing

      Same. Past 3 RTAA's, nothing else. Usually stops at exactly 1 minute and you need to reload and start from 5 seconds or so after if jams up, then it happens 1 or two more times. if you go back to 1 minute it always freezes and gives the error message at the same spot. In one video it happened at around 45 seconds, then around 1:30, then again later, but usually its twice with the first one at around 1 minute flat. Only RTAA. So friggin weird.

    I am the EXACT same way with my ADHD. I take Concerta instead, but I'm constantly forgetting if I've taken my medication or not. I have a journal I mark down the days I remember to take it... Except sometimes I forget to do that. :c

      Concerta for the win, I have dead drops around my house in case it hits me that I forgot, and then a plastic bag to keep in my backpack.

    I have anxiety meds and sleep meds. I never forget to take my sleeping meds because I take them right before I go to bed, but my anxiety meds have to be taken in the morning and I can never remember if I took them or not. I have to mentally go over it a few times to have a chance at remembering like "Okay so I'm looking at my pill bottle. I just took my pills. Today I have taken my meds." Unfortunately with a dissociation disorder I think I did that today when it was actually like last week. And I have a pill organizer thingy but I forget to refill it...

      I think they mentioned it on the podcast, but there is a top for pill bottles that automatically resets a timer whenever you take the top off. My Grandfather uses it for his medication. Here is an example.

      Where you keep your medication. Have a calendar and check off the days you took them. If you forget, just check and see if that day was checked off or not. Or something like that or what farson said.

    My ex had the ADHD and had the same issue as Miles. I stuck a calendar page onto our fridge and he would cross off each day immediately after he had taken his meds, simple system but it worked!

    I have the same issue as Miles with my medication, except I have 3 different types to take which means 3 different bottles.

    A lot of people are recommending alarms and such, but I would recommend a check list app that allows you to repeat the item everyday.

      Keep by Google let's you set reminders on notes and have them go off either daily or on a set day.
      Not exactly a checklist, but close enough.

    Miles' issue is the exact reason why I brush my teeth and take all my meds the first time I go to the bathroom in the morning, that way I can be like "Have I taken my meds?" and the response is, well I don't need to pee so yep.

      That happened with my mac as well for a time, but it simply fixed itself. I'm currently using chrome version 57.0.2987.133 (64-bit) and everything's working fine.

    so what you do is you set up a simple system. You tie a string to the inside of the cap so once it opened the string is loosened(make sure it stays on the cap. That string is attached to a weight of some sort. The weight will lower and hit a button. That button will close a trap door that holds the weight down. Now you can close the bottle. At the same time that button will activate a timer. When the timer is past 12 hours it will release the weight and everything will reset. So now you just have to check if the weight is up or down. Down means you took the pill and up means it's time to eat.


    Use the tension of the string to pull the weight up and use a lock on the cabinet the pills are in to stop the weight from throwing the pills.


    Very easy to do.

    Tip for remembering if you did something or not. Take a picture of yourself doing it every day, that way you can look, and if you don't have a picture from the current date, you know you need to do it.

      Good idea, though if your pictures leak on the Internet someone can make a collage that makes you look like an addict :)

    As someone who has ADHD i can sympathize with miles about doing something and almost instantly can't remember if i did it or not. I have to 3 time check if i put my water bottle in my car before leaving the house.

      As someone else who has ADHD I can also relate to this problem. Plus I hate what Adderall does to me specifically which is why I had to switch to other meds for my condition.

    I worked at a summer camp a couple of years ago. One summer, I had a camper who in the morning before they were able to take their ADHD medicine, and right before dinner, when their first dose was wearing off, who would get really weird. Similar to a wild Camp Camp Nikki who was set loose and unable to be reined in. This camper would constantly be wanting to be near me, and touching me. During the meals/ getting ready for the morning or dinner, they also had the need to constantly try to chew on my clothing. Like the strings on my hoodie or my sleeves of my shirt. This camper would also say really strange things to me. The one I really remember was they wanted to take me home with them and hide me in their closet like their pet hamster. They would only feed me the leftovers from their dinner. Nobody would know what happened to me and I would live with them forever. Once they had their ADHD medicine though, they were perfectly normal, and all the creepiness stopped.

      As a member of the ADHD/ADD community I want to to assure you that was not typical behavior for someone with ADHD. That seems like there was something else going on in tandem with the ADHD.

    I set an alarm to take my meds every day at 6pm (there's reasons for the time but whatever). Problem is, if I'm out somewhere and the alarm goes off I have to remember to take them when I get home. So I'll get home and take them, then forget I've taken them. I think there are apps now where you have to manually input that you've taken them but it's an effort.

      Medsafe! It's a great app for if you are forgetful. And you can set it so star wars characters tell you to take your meds. I used it for a few months until I got my new phone and forgot to set it up again. But by then I was in the habit of taking it.

    Whenever I need to remember anything, I set an alarm on my phone.  If Miles set a second alarm that was meant to go off after his shower, he could get into a pattern to always take his meds at that time


    He could also put a string on his finger before he goes to bed at night, and take that string off in the morning when he takes his meds.
