Superpower Day. If you had a superpower – what would it be? How would you use it? – My superpower would be Organizing so I could handle all of the paperwork, phone calls that comes along with being chronically ill. Insurance paperwork would be taken care of in the blink of an eye and not one item would be lost, ever. Family Medical Leave papers for my husband would be filled out and sent in to work with copies made, in a timely manner. I’d be able to fit in all of my doctor visits, all of my medical tests and remember to take all of my medications on time. There would be no need for more than one calendar, or reminder notes.
Files would be in chronological order and alphabetical order. I’d look for something and find it immediately. Bills will be even before I get them in the mail. I’d never stress over anything related to insurance coverage, prescriptions and refills, missing appointments, or making payments.
Organization may not be your typical kind of superpower, but multiple chronic illnesses call for an extra-special type of help!
