The "Smart" Pill? - November 30th 2017, 09:11 PM

So for those who remember my previous posts about my swollen lymph nodes, every test they ran came back clear. So now they're scheduling me for a "smart" pill test. It's where I swallow a pill with a mini camera inside and they watch as it goes through my digestive system.

Has anyone ever had this done? I'm afraid of swallowing the pill because it's so huge, they showed me a sample of the pill and it's gigantic.

I can do it
I'll get through it
But Iím only human
And I bleed when I fall down
Iím only human
And I crash and I break down
Your words in my head, knives in my heart
You build me up and then I fall apart
'Cause Iím only human, yeah

Not had it done, but looked it up and it's supposedly a little bit bigger than a multivitamin. I guess it may feel a bit uncomfortable swallowing it given the size, but hopefully it'll be fine. Try to stay relaxed, but if you're really scared of swallowing it, you can always let them know. They've probably had others feeling afraid of swallowing too. How I like to think of it is that you've probably already swallowed food that size without realising it!
