When I was younger, I use to hate taking medications in the form of tablets/pills. Whenever it’s time for medication, I will secretly, throw it away in the sink, flush it down the toilet bowl, crumple it with papers and throw it into the dustbin or hide it away between the kitchen shelf, tv cabinet or just about anywhere with enough space for a tablet to hide!
Yes, I refused the tablets and pills because I just can’t get it down my throat! To swallow one blahdee tablet will take me a full glass of clear water. It takes skills to swallow it down okay, and too bad, I don’t have that skill. I suck at taking tablets!
Tablets I hate the most.
Once, I was caught red-handed by my mum for trying to dispose the tablets by spitting it out into the sink. Another time, my dad found it in the drain and behind the kitchen cabinet. Damn lah. Dah la no skills at swallowing the tablets, want to dispose the tablets pun kena tangkap!
But that was then. Now that I am older and mature (perasan!), I STILL HATE TAKING TABLETS!!! I just can’t seem to get it down my throat in one mouthful of water. I still need ONE FULL GLASS of water, sometimes more. And when I’m done with the tablet, I feel so bloatted weh!
Pills in capsules, I'm okay.
What’s more embarrassing is my mum still monitors me when I am taking my tablets. And I was home last weekend when my mum said to me, “You know your lil’ bro took his flu tablet in one sip of water?” Sigh… Perli habis!
