One thing that I’ve really struggled with about my condition is organisation. I’ve always been fairly organised, but forgetful, which isn’t extremely helpful when you need to remember to take your medications in the day!🤦🏻♀️ As daft as it sounds, I don’t know where I’d be without these three things in my life. Looking from the outside, they look as insignificant as anything else could be- but to me these 3 things help me on a daily basis!
I keep all of my medications, my pain relief, my heart burn treatments and my paperwork in that big “drugs chest” as I like to call it. Having a chest that looks pretty, not only makes the whole storage of medication easier, but it makes it less of an eyesore!
The daily drugs trays are a massive life saver too! Every week I do have to sit for about 15 mins dosing out my tablets, but once they’re done I can just pop my tray in my bag and go! And if I’m going away for a few day’s, all I need to take is the trays-rather than what feels like hundreds of boxes of medicine!
Finally, my little pouch. I keep this in my bag wherever I go. I keep my drugs tray in here, as well as some extra pain relief and some heart burn medication too. It helps me keep everything together and safe, so I can be sure I’ve got what I need to keep my body safe.
I never thought that these would be the kind of things that make me feel happy, or that doing my medication trays every week would be calming and relaxing, but they really are! It’s often hard to find the good amongst the bad things, so I just wanted to share the things that make me smile and feel good everyday!❤️ #spoonie #chronicillness #cteph #ph #pulmonaryhypertension #pulmonaryembolism #warrior #phighter #hiddendisability #strong #happiness #organised
