When I was in Junior High, I injured my hip. At that point in time, I thought it was a pulled muscle from not stretching before cheer practice. I shrugged it off and though I had pain, I kept cheering and kept riding horses competitively. I dealt with pain off and on it for years.
In my 20s, I was told I had severe arthritis in my hip. It was diagnosed as degenerative arthritis. The pain in it was unbearable if I didn’t take my prescribed medications. I was told if I didn’t take it easy, I would need a hip replacement by 40. Fast forward to January 2019. We had a big snow storm on New Years Eve and I took a spill on the ice….right. on. my. bad. hip. The pain was excruciating and I found out that because of the deterioration of my bone, the fall caused a fracture in my hip. I also found out that the arthritis had progressed to the point of bone spurs and I would need a hip replacement.
This is why Walgreens Wake Up Call is so important to me. When dealing with chronic illness, taking medications regularly and on time is so important. I am the worst about this! I constantly get so caught up in day to day life that I forget to take my medication! I have had days where I completely forget or take it very late. Did you know that 50% of Americans aren’t taking their medication as prescribed or on time?
