I am in Gallup, about 200 miles from home. I visit here at least once a month.

The problem is, this time, when I arrived at the hotel, I opened the trunk to find it empty!

Yep, I forgot my overnight bag. I could live with wearing the same clothes without much complaint, but my meds were in that bag.

I am usually pretty adherent to my meds, but I guess I won't get to take them until I get back home sometime tomorrow afternoon.

I am not amused and feel like kicking myself. It wouldn't do any good, but I might feel better.

I think I will go buy some Narpoxen. I have a headache now.

The goal is 95% adherence.  Pay this no mind.

I remember you did this once before some years ago.  Dingbat!  ;)

 But as Philly and BT posted, nothing to worry about missing one day.

I think we are both believers in adherence, Mark, so I won't make light of this, but like the lock I left, twice, at the Y, the house keys which I dropped- apparently in the snow since they reappeared once it melted enough here- but didn't notice dropping, the times that I stand there, literally unable to picture myself taking or not taking meds which are so on automatic that this has happened, too, you drive off with everything except your bag.  I suspect that next time, you will double check.  Best, Win

Sorry you are stressed out by this . I forgot to order meds this past month and missed a day and stressed out for an hour or so until I realized I wasn't going to burst into flames or shrivel up like a vampire in the morning sun . One day ain't no big thing .
