@formerlyzivah: i've been taking the pill for 7 years now, and i still forget. especially when i get up later on weekends. i'm absolutely TERRIBLE about remembering. for a while, i had nearly a month's worth of missed pills saved up— i put them in a bottle in my desk at work, so that if i got to work and realized i'd forgotten, i still had them there. and yes, i know that if you miss one you're supposed to take two the next time, but DAMN that mades me feel ill.
