Fast forward six months, and oh, how times have changed. This time around, I'm throwing around the lingo and getting things done. Of course, I have my first manufacturer and my suppliers to thank for that - but I'm amazed at the comfort level, familiarity, and confidence with which I'm now able to talk pillbag manufacturing.
It just took time. And experience. And patience. The same three things it takes to become accustomed to dealing with lupus. Today, talking with doctors, throwing around medical jargon, and dealing with the curve balls the disease throws at me come a whole lot easier than they used to. In the beginning, I didn't think I'd ever be able to remember what a Complement level was or the importance of a SED rate, I couldn't imagine how I'd ever be able to contribute much of anything to my doctor's assessment of my disease, and I certainly didn't see how I was ever going to rein in that nasty little disease called lupus.
But here I am. Familiar, comfortable, and confident about living with lupus. I'm not exacatly ecstatic about it, but I'm doing okay.
And so is my current manufacturer...as I'm still scheduled to launch the Pillbag website tomorrow, Tuesday, May 1st. Log onto the PILLFOLD website tomorrow to order your new pillfold or pillpouch - which is sure to add a dose of style™ to your daily medicine routine (or the routine of a loved one, of course!)
