Are Chronic Disease Patients Pill Hoarders?

Do you suffer from a chronic disease like arthritis?  Do you have a medicine cupboard full of pills?  I sure do.

I think that having suffered in pain so many times over the years, and suffered the embarrassment that is psoriasis, I keep all the meds my doctors have given me even if I didn’t finish a full course.  I have bags full of celebrex, steroid creams, anti-inflammatories, pain killers, immodium, buscopan, etc. etc.

I shudder to think of the suffering that would ensue if I woke in the middle of the night with an outbreak of pain or rash, and didn’t have any medication on hand to treat it.

And if the zombies attack then I want to make sure I’ll have enough meds for at least a couple of years right?
