That’s what I thought! Hope you can get some advice regarding that soon but I’d still check out the blog as it has some good tips and featured posts from moms outside the US too. 🙂

I thought I was the only one who relied on post-it notes! Lol. I make notes to myself in my emails and dedicate each one with a specific subject line. Sometimes I text myself but email can be safer.

Also, advocating for an experienced phlebotomist. Some didn’t use a butterfly needle when it was suppose to be done, I have smaller veins. Not using it would lead to bruising. The explanation of SED rate also has differed from various doctors. So it can get confusing.

I only use my left arm now because my right elbow has damage and I rather not use that arm. There have been periods of time when I needed to do blood tests all at once but to solve this I spread them out and do the most important ones first then the ones that can wait I do later

Osteopathy, biofreeze has always been life saver I use this on my elbow that has damage and it works, deep blue rub doterra, cbd salve, wrist wraps and getting special splints customized for my hand from my occupational therapist helps... tell them work you do & they can help

Omg I used this at occupational therapy back when I was first diagnosed. It’s called “Fluiedough” I don’t know if I’m spelling it right but yeah I stuck my hands in these wraps and the machined turned on. Used that for about 15 minutes then had OT session.
