@stuckonu, I just now came up on this message. I must compliment you on your ability to recall and write about your experiences. I see that you and @hopeful33250 are onto a plan to make communication with your caregivers more meaningful. Is that right?
Here is what has worked well for me as an efficient tool for my doctors. I kept a notebook and I entered:
– the date,
-treatment or medications (over counter and Rx) and any supplements , -doctor, if one was involved,
-running list of any changes as they occurred.
-I also kept a journal of my narrative because it let me express my own thoughts and feelings which helped me to cope when I was in failing health waiting for
my organ transplant.
Let me know if this sounds like something that might be helpful for you.
