If I were to ask anyone who lives with a chronic health issue to make a list of places that they try to AVOID AT ALL COSTS, I believe could safely bet my monthly salary that their local EMERGENCY ROOM would be at the top that list. Not only because of the absurdly long wait times, and the potential exposure to who knows what kind of disgusting germs that could be floating around. But throughout this article I think you will find help with the ten tips I provide to make your next Emergency Room visit run a little smoother.
I have graciously been nominated for the Disability Blogger Award by Jordyn from Chronically Unimaginable. I was notified by her on one of my recent posts. Thank you so much Jordyn, this means the world to me! This is an award of recognition to those blogging in the chronic illness, mental health, disability, and special needs communities. The person responsible for starting this is Georgina from www.chronillicles.com. She decided to invent this honor because of the lack of recognition present in these communities today. What a beautiful notion, don’t you think?
