10 Tips to Own Muscular Dystrophy and Other Chronic Illnesses

Keep things in order

When you’re living with muscular dystrophy or any chronic illness, you don’t want to constantly look for your meds when it’s time to take it or swim through a pile of rubbish to look for a script. You can’t exactly wing everything when you have doctor appointments to keep and a medical regimen to follow. Be organized. Keep all your medical paperwork in a folder and label it properly. Make sure all the pieces of medical equipment you use are always clean and ready to use. Keep track of your meds so that you know when to get a refill. If you need to take meds a couple of times a day, set a reminder on your phone. Your life would be a lot easier if you plan ahead.
