Oh this post made me laugh!!
Because I so have an info card!! I thought I was the only one that did this! I've had to use it so many times lately, i"m so glad I have it. I hate not knowing the answers to the questions they ask, I feel like an idiot! So if I can just pull out my card and give them exact dates, seems to make everyone happy! The clinic I work has lil wallet sized medication cards they provide for patients......I used it for meds and everything else. meds on one side, allergies on the other, and below allergies I list all my important dates: I have the date of my UC diagnosis, the date of my diabetes diagnosis. my last eye exam, my last tetanus shot, my last pneumonia and flu shot, my last pap smear, last mammo, and the dates of my hospitalization.
