I have one of those Medical ID bracelets that I wear 24/7. The problem with it is that I have to call and update my medications all of the time. I’ll be honest with you, I haven’t updated it in a long time because it’s just another thing to do. It’s another reminder of everthing that’s wrong with me and something that I’d be doing too often for my own taste.
What a whiner, right? I did think of a solution for this and for others like me, yes I think there are others who feel the same way, why not be able to update our bracelets with a scanner every time we get a new prescription or a new diagnosis?
POS system or Point of Sale Systems can handle this. I guess we’d need an inventor to get behind this project. If you’re interested in this, let me know. I’d like to make a little money off this brilliant idea.
As I continue on this road of life with multiple chronic illnesses, I am learning more about myself than I may have if I wasn’t sick. The lessons at first were too difficult to face. Sometimes even now I feel like I’ve had enough learning, but the lessons continue. Most of them when things are going badly.
For example each new diagnosis, almost every flare up, and some setbacks have had me sad, depressed at times and angry. The anger is the worst. That anything can trigger me to have an outburst feeling.
Yes it’s been that bad. I recently wrote about working on my bad attitude toward my family. But this anger issue is even worse. I find myself getting frustrated easily and just blow up. Usually I’m alone when this happens. This is so unlike me and it scares me too.
So next on my list of things to work on is finding out why I am easily angered and what to do about this. I’ve been praying about this and am going to talk to someone about it if it continues to be a problem. I haven’t been feeling stressed, so I’m wondering if it is the sleeping problem I’ve been having. I hope so as I don’t like being this way at all.
