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.
- 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!
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!!
