Welcome. This post is part of the WEGO Health National Health Blog Post Month (NHBPM) challenge for November, 2012.
No, that is not my purse. I can’t imagine using that unless… no, can’t imagine using that. Actually, I rarely use a purse. If it’s important to me, it’s in my pockets. What is in my pockets is:
- cell phone
- sometimes my Walkman
That’s it. When I do use a purse, I’m usually going somewhere specific like a doctor’s appointment. I pack a little survivor bag which usually includes::
- papers to appointments
- a couple of bottles of water
- a snack like a muffin
- cooling packs for when I start getting hot
Really, I carry a purse for the cooling packs.The important things I still keep in my pockets. If I start getting dizzy, anxiety sometimes kicks in and I start feeling hot. At worst, I may feel light-headed.
And as a bonus while living with dizziness, I also got to live with peri-menopause. Nothing like getting hot from dizziness and a hot flash at the same time.
Cold packs. Sometimes a girls best friend.
