And below is a copy of a recent class presentation - where she was tasked with providing a "How-to" (complete with a live pillbag demo) for her class. I couldn't have said it better myself!
Pillbags: A How-To by Emma R.
Do you ever want a more fashionable way to carry your medication? Do you ever get embarrassed to carry around pillboxes? Try a pillfold or pillpouch!
What’s a pillfold? A pillfold is a small bag that folds up to store your pills. There are eight slots that zipper closed so you can insert your pills into the bag. Seven out of eight have the days of the week and suns or moons. The eighth is conveniently blank, making it so one could choose what they’d like.
What’s a pillpouch? A pillpouch is a cute little bag with elastic straps inside so you can put your pillbottles in. It looks exactly like a little bag.
To use a pillfold, you sort your pills into the correct slots and zip them closed. To use a pillpouch, you insert your pillbottles into the straps inside and pull the drawstring to ‘cinch’ it closed.
These wonderful pillbags were invented by Sara Gorman, a victim of Lupus. She hopes to make “more manly” ones, as she has them in pink and flowers and zigzags, etc. For more information, look at www.pillfold.com.
