Oh thanks everyone, I’ve had such a laugh reading your posts as I thought packers were taking the pee too. I’m sure the seal on crisp packets has changed as I’m no longer to open them either! I have found that new jars are easier to open if you break the vacuum. I do this by standing it on its head and putting a knife under the edge of the lid, but if it still doesn’t work I run the lid under hot water which expands it.
I’d love a solution to getting into my Oramorph bottle though. It’s got the best kid proof lid of any I’ve come across. The worst part is that the only time I take it is when I’m in a lot of pain, so I’m even weaker than usual!! I got out of doing all the blister packs for my tablets by getting confused and accidentally overdosing, I don’t recommend that technique though. Now the pharmacist puts them in a nomad box. I wonder if there’s an easy option for Oramorph syrup, preferably with a straw as I tend to spill it all when eventually getting the bottle open, adding insult to injury.
All suggestions gratefully accepted. Take care.
