What to bring to the ER

Hey there! Happy almost Thanksgiving 🙂

Sadly yesterday, I ended up in the emergency room. . . again.

But, without doubt, there is always a collection that I bring with me. One good thing about having a chronic illness is building experience!! So today I thought I would share some tips on what to bring.


  1. A baggy and comfy sweatshirt

I have found the VS Pink sweatshirts tend to be my favorite. Yes, they can get expensive, but I feel that it’s worth it!


2. Fuzzy Socks


Fuzzy socks are a MUST for almost everywhere!! But especially in the hospital! Hospital’s tend to be freezing!

3. Slippers/Uggs


Again, hospitals are like the arctic. . . I have no idea why they haven’t heard of heat yet! This is the pair of Uggs I’ve had for years and I always bring them because I am so cold blooded and am always cold. This is due to another condition, Raynaud’s. But slippers will do just fine as well 🙂

4. Ipod and Earphones


Sometimes the ER can be loud, so you reach for your music. . . Sometimes you need a distraction from why you’re there, so you reach for you’re music.

**I feel like this is self-explanatory!!


4. Optional: Phone and Laptop

My Laptop! I get these stickers ’cause I’m a good patient!! Can you tell I love Frozen?!

I bring my laptop because one of my favorite distractions is watching Youtube videos!

Here are some of my favorite people to watch:


Jaclyn Hill – I love her because she is hilarious, talented and makes amazing videos!!


Mallory Cornelison – She is one of my favorite people ever! She has a chronic illness as well. She is such a big inspiration to me 🙂 Not to mention her and her hubby’s vlogs are adorable!! She is so gifted with makeup and even makes “Wednesday Wisdom” advice videos that are fantastic 🙂


I hope this helped you even a little bit, and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!

  1. I love VS Pink sweatshirts! I have like 8 that I rotate around in the winter. It sucks your living with an illness but at least your learning how to handle situations it puts you in. I hope you feel better soon.
