My wife hates when I do this. It's not polite to use the "R" word anymore when referring
to the developmentally challenged, but that's the word my wife uses anyway. :D
We've been together since August 8, 1988. It's an easy date to remember. 8/8/88
Politeness went out the window shortly thereafter.

'You sound like a (insert "R" word), my wife complains, when I try to explain something to her with a tape
under my tongue. And I have to admit, she's right. I do sound pretty awful. It's been a good lesson
for me in how important one's tongue is, when it comes to speaking half way intelligently. I'll never take
my tongue for granted again, I'm sure of that much anyway.

So why do I do it?

Well sometimes you just can't help it. You can't just spit the tape out. They're expensive. And sometimes you
just have to find a way to communicate. So I sometimes resort to writing notes, but to tell you the truth,
I print like a (insert "R" word) too. So I just can't win.

I know, I know, it's pretty much of an "R" word post. But maybe someone will get a laugh out of it anyway!
Anyone else run into this problem?

Best,
G.

Every. Single. Day.
I have a three year old that just can't understand that I need to be quiet for a little bit. And why would she, she's 3.
I also have clients that call-and I need to answer and talk to them because if they get my voicemail, chances are, they will call the next person on Google and I would loose that account.
It also seems that I can go for a while without having to speak but as soon as I take my medicine, everyone wants to have a conversation!! Terrible timing!

can you split your dose into smaller amounts so its not so large and noticeable when you speak?
isn't 8/8/88 the day either fergie or diana had the first royal baby?

My 11 yr old talks nonstop, like me. He's always had impeccable timing on when I'm taking my medicine. But finally after 5 yrs, he'll walk in the room and I'll point to my mouth and he leaves the room with one of those stomping feet motions lol. So I think I finally got through to him!! :)

Hi Sis,
I do take smaller bites of my tapes now. And I've found if I keep it between the tip of my tongue
and the bottom part of my mouth...just below my bottom front teeth...I can talk reasonably well.
I started splitting up my daily dose mostly in order to try and get some pain relief, so the better
talking discovery was pretty much by accident.

In any case, as problems go this isn't what you'd call a big one. (although my
wife might disagree :D

She actually takes it all in good humor. We get along very well. I'm
truly a lucky fellow.

Normally it doesn't affect my speech. But if I know I'll be talking to someone or want to make a phone call all I do is put it between my top lip and gum where it stays put for a longer period of time. Not bothered by saliva or anything else.

Funny you brought that up. The only time I had a problem with it was when I first got induced onto the 8 mg tabs. Those took forever to melt and I had to make sure no one bothered me at work. "Please phone, don't ring!"

If anyone talks to me while I'm taking my meds I just say "subliva" and they leave me be. :)

In fact, my best friend, who calls me several times a week, knows that if I text "subliva" that I can't talk right now.

Happens all the time. Sounds like you and your wife have a good relationship. Humorous relationship that is. Hope you get some pain relief now that you are splitting your doses. I didn't realize how much relief I was getting till I weaned down to 1 mg. Quite a lot actually! Hope yall are having a good weekend. Your forum friend, Angie
