"May the road rise to meet you, the sun shine warm on your face and the wind always be at your back." Jennifer, I am sorry to hear of your troubles and glad that you have found one caring person you trust. We all need that. As to remembering to take your meds, in my experience with my ADD/depression, I will never remember, That's the way it is. I must be reminded.
My reminder is a simple two week pill box that I fill with all my medications (9 total - 5 in the morning, 4 at night). The box has two separate (AM & PM) compartments for each of the 14 days. The box is clear plastic so i can look into it and see at a glance if I have taken the meds scheduled. I have to have my reminder visible, otherwise I will not remember it. So, the pill box can't be in a drawer, it must be out on the bathroom counter top where I will see it in the morning when I get up and then in the evening when I go to bed.
In the past, I've had a couple of pill containers that beep at you to remind you. They were OK as long as I carried them with me, but aren't useful for the number of medications I take these days.
Hope this helps. My best wishes to you in your struggle.
