First, promise me you won’t laugh. OK ? Deal ?
I’m can’t swallow large pill.
It used to be I can’t swallow pill but I’ve learn how to master the art of swallowing as the year goes by. Yes I admit, I took quite a tad long time to master it. Nevertheless I have succeeded…except for certain pill sizes… I’m still a ‘dungu’.
I learn to swallow ‘Poh Chai’ Pills (famous Chinese diarrahea pills) in my secondary school. Not whole bottle la…I will take 1 tiny Poh Chai pill with 1 big gulp (or several gulps) of water. By the time I finish 5 tiny pills, my stomach is already bloating.
I learn to swallow this pill (for my secret illness) just last year.
I learn to swallow ‘Cetirizine Hydrochloride Pseudoephedrine Hydrochloride’ (for common cold and blocked nose) just a week ago. And I’m damn proud of this achievement.
My next targets are to learn how to swallow ‘Panadol’ kind of pill size and fish oil capsule. I tried swallowing fish oil capsule without success when I was little. It was damn bitter when I broke the capsule… yucky fish oil.
So how did I managed to take my pill before the era of ‘I can swallow pill’ ? Easy!
I just need a cup of lukewarm water, a spoon (soup spoon is better) and that’s it! Put a little bit of water into the spoon and drop your pill in. Wait for it to melt. Then I guess you know what to do.
What if the pill is tough? You wanna wait that long for it to melt? Don’t worry I have a solution. Just slice the pill with a knife into several small pieces and proceed with the above method.
Ok what if it is a capsule? Just open the capsule and pour the powder/drug into the spoon and proceed like the above.
For those who can swallow pill, do you use the same method ?
Now that I can swallow pill, I kinda miss the ‘real’ drug taste. It was bittersweet I tell ya. ‘Susah-susah dahulu, senang-senang kemudian’ (something like that)… I drink ‘bitter’ medicine so that I can get better. 😎
p/s: Germany will win the WC. Don’t cry for me Argentina… coz Argentina will loseeee lose loseeee!
Have a SUPERB weekend all of ya!
