Welcome back for another day of the Allergy Binder Challenge!
Let’s keep going.
TODAY’S TOPIC: Physician Papers
If you’ve been an allergy parent for any amount of time, you’ve probably accumulated some papers from your allergist.
- Medical Notes
- Medicine Instructions
- Food Lists
- Desensitizing Info
- Test Results
- Action Plans
These are papers that a physician has printed or written for you because you specifically need them in your medical situation.
QUICK STORY: Our allergist left our local clinic to start her own allergy practice. So we left the clinic, too and followed her. Guess what? The clinic made it really complicated to get our medical records moved over. So I simply took my papers into the new office myself. I say this to stress the point that even though electronic records are great, I think having hard copies of your medical papers is a must for many reasons. So stick with me on today’s assignment!
TODAY’S ASSIGNMENT: Find Your Physician Papers
Your assignment today is to simply find all these papers and put them in your homework pile. If there are papers for multiple children or even yourself or spouse, go ahead and separate them by who they are for.
If you’re like I was, they may be in file cabinets, tucked in books, in bags, thrown in a drawer, on a desk, taped on walls and in cabinets, etc! Allergy life is understandably chaotic at times. But we are gonna change that today!
I’ll show you where to put these at the end of the week.
PARTICIPANT QUESTION: “How far back do our medical records need to go?”
This is a good question. I know some of us have a TON! But what makes me assign this task especially is the fact that allergy treatments are on the rise. And an allergist may possibly someday be able to develop a desensitizing plan for you with your full allergic history in hand. Mine did!
PARTICIPANT COMMENT: “I’ll never have to dig for important allergy information again.”
Exactly! That’s the whole point. Who’s got time for that?!
Any questions, just leave them in the comments below. I’m committed to helping you get this done.
Cheering for you,
