Right now I'm here in this moment and I'm learning. Thank you for teaching me. Wow. Amen to that. So what's the things that you do on a regular basis to keep yourself whole medication? So you're medicated all the time? Every day, every day. What's your ritual? If I took my pill box out, it would sound like a rattle like a baby rattle. Really? Oh, yeah. Okay.
