I have written a lot about older people’s over reliance on pills. (Click on “PILLS” in the TAG CLOUD). My favourite cartoon character in the GrumbleSmiles blog is “Pilly Galore” who is an elderly lady whose life revolves around pills. To her they have become a badge of importance, but also a point of contact with a lonely outside world. Pilly read in the newspaper about a new pill that is becoming very popular. In fact 128 million people around the world use them. One of the most popular varieties is made by a nice sounding company name APPLE. Pilly is going to see her friend and favourite GP tomorrow to see if he will prescribe her an apple tablet. It could turn out to be the best cure she has ever given her to treat her loneliness.
Tablets better than pills
