I have one thing I have to remember to do each day, take my glucosamine with breakfast and dinner. Pretty simple. In theory. Do you think I can do this with any kind of regularity? I was born with congenital hip dislocation which is usually caught in your first check up straight out of the womb. Usually. Guess the nurses at my delivery were busy doing... something else besides their jobs. I don't know, it was the first year of All My Children, maybe they were talking about that. Anyway, I didn't discover it until about two decades later after wondering why I kept suffering so much ankle/shin/knee/lower back pain when I ran. I need to take the glucosamine to keep my hips happy. To help keep me from being a shrivelled up old man in constant pain. I have good reasons to take these pills.
This is all a round about way of saying that if we relied on me taking birth control pills we'd have 10 kids and live in a trailer park.
