Since school starts in just 3 days I thought it would maybe be a good idea to get some supplies 😉 Besides notebooks and pencils I also get extra things for my health, like hand sanitizer, snacks, ibuprofen, and tissues.
I buy hand sanitizer because it is very important for me to stay healthy, and although washing your hands is probably the better option, this is just one way to help protect myself from germs.
I buy snacks because sometimes throughout the day I get to feeling dizzy or lightheaded and just need something that can help with my blood sugar. Although my school has policies that usually prevent students from having food in their lockers, my school is really good at accommodating me for my health needs!
Another thing that I ALWAYS keep in my locker is tissues. I blow my nose a lot (even when I don’t have a cold) and I like using my own tissues that other sick kids haven’t been using. I also like using my own because they are usually softer 🙂
Finally ibuprofen. I hate taking this medication for several reasons. For one, it is a medicine that is processed through the kidneys, and I have had kidney trouble in the past and I don’t want to damage my kidneys. For 2, its just another pill to take. I know that seems silly, but when you take 40 plus pills and medicines a day you just get tired of it. I try my best not to use it, but if I have a migraine it is the only thing that helps, and I hate missing more school than I have to.
