Mostly looking at how others remember to take theirs, what do you do for a job, do you have problems with your boss having an issue? How do you handle it?
I work at a dept/grocery store. Whether my bosses have an issue or not, they really haven’t said. They know I’m diabetic, have kidney failure and on dialysis. They know the days I can’t work & have accommodated me on that. When I have to take an extra break, I usually let them know & why. So far, I’ve only had to do that once!! They’ve been accommodating so far. So long as I get my work done!
I have my meds where I'll see them. But I'm on insulin, so I have to do insulin before every meal & my pills I take at same time every day. Some people set a reminder on their phone, sticky notes etc. As for my boss, have no problems, since I do "home dialysis", and some days I have to do it at work. I work in a department store, when I started - I went to the main boss, told him outright what I needed & why. Shocked me, he was really nice about it & told me. Most places will provide somewhere when you have diabetic needs like to test, a low blood sugar etc
Well my meds come in a blister pack. There are pills for morning, dinner time and bedtime. So easy to remember. Sometimes do forget the ones for time, but that's just for colesteral. My pills for diabetes are in the morning and dinner as those to taken with food. It's a matter having a routine with them, and conscious effort. Soon you'll taking without thinking about it. We all forget from to time to time, because life gets in the way. None of us is perfect.
You CAN report them. The Adults with Disabilities Act protects you. I passed out from low blood sugar on a production line once, and from then on, I left the line when I had to, they could not stop it.
Callie P, good luck in finding a new job.
