I sometimes would get so engrossed in my morning routine, that unless I got out of that hyper-focus mode to look at the clock, I would forget to take my Vyvanse and other morning medications and then the rest of my day would basically go down the toilet.

Then there have been times when I was engrossed watching tv or posting on the threads or surfing the web at night (occasionally on the same night I forgot to take my Vyvanse), and would look up at the clock and realize it was past the time I was supposed to take my bedtime meds!


I will still take all of my medications, regardless of how late I am in taking them. I learned my lesson recently when I thought it was too late to take my Vyvanse! (I wrote a poem about it which is in the Creative Writing forum) I am disabled and unable to work. I am not on a schedule so if I go to sleep later than normal, there is no harm in waking up a little later...I will just need this watch to wake me in case I am still asleep when it is time for my morning medication! (Sometimes I go out during the day and forget about midday medications too)

What do you all think?
