My CPN is going to help me manage my meds

Sarah, who is my community psychiatric nurse has been a tremendous support to me over the last couple of weeks.
Last week, when emily was storing meds, and I found her stash, sarah came to my house to take the meds and get rid of them.
I was so grateful to her for taking them out of the house. I didnt want more meds than I am meant to have in the house, as when Emily gets suicidal she overdoses, and she does it on impulse mostly, so I wanted to be sure there was no temptation there for her to overdose.
While Sarah was here, we talked, and she said she’d organise for me to have my meds blister packed, and, true to her word, she rang the pharmacy and asked them to blister pack the meds in future.
They used to do it, but for some reason they stopped.
I have to pay extra to have them blister packed, but I think its worth it. Its the only way I can keep track of what meds I’ve taken.
With our track history of missing some meds, and with Emily storing them up and then they not being taken, this is a better way to manage them.
Tomorrow, we get our first blister pack, we get a weeks supply at a time.
Sarah has offered to come out to my house tomorrow and go through the blister pack with me.
I really appreciate her offering to do that.
She’s gonna call me in the morning, to arrange a time.
I am so hoping we can get our meds straightened out. No wonder we feel off, when half the time the proper meds arent being taken.
Its a relief to finally be getting help with that.
If the blister packing of the meds doesnt work, I’m really at a loss. I really don’t know how we’ll manage our meds. The only other option is to have someone come in to our home to administer our meds, but I am not sure that is realistic.
I see Dr. Barry on Wednesday, so I am hoping she has some advice.
