I'm a young woman with a lot of health problems. some of them are my fault some of them are not I can't function without taking my medications everyday and I'm still in my twenties. I never thought I'd have a pill box in my twenties but here we are.

      Same. I've had new Dr's surprised by how many meds I take. It's sucks knowing it's necessary but it really is. Just remember that they do help and that's what's important.

      I can empathize with you! I’m in my early twenties averaging about 20 pills a day just to function and it’s tough. Like really tough. It helps a lot having a therapist who specializes in chronic illness, but also understanding you’re human and that these feelings are normal. You can grieve your body, that’s a completely normal thing to do.

      I've had a pill box since I was 15 so I understand the frustration.

      Wish I was in my 20's. I'm thirty. Makes me nervous for when I get old. I was in my mid 20's when it got more extreme.

      I just wanna say probably the things that you might think are your fault are probably not theres a lot of ableist and medical gaslighting in our society.

        @MystikMandy some of them are. I have a poor diet. I stress eat junk. And im always anxious leading to the stress eating. Its caused me to gain weight, constant upset stomach, heartburn ect. My anxiety, depression and sebbarioch dermatitis are genetic though.

      I'm a little older, 38, but that's too young also. I guess it's nothing to be ashamed of even though it feels that way. Ugh! Sending love.

      You guys are not alone. Need a pill box myself and I never thought it would come to this point. Feels good to not be alone
