I'm now creating tee shirts to support my medical needs and to create a booklet for TBI (traumatic brain injury) and amnesia patients/survivors to utilize in conjunction with their health-care providers. (FOR FREE!)
There is nothing a Dr can do for a patient without clear and whole information.
Most people don't realize this, but we're "consumers" in the medical and healthcare field. We must give as much information as humanly possible for our medical staff members to be able to correctly and wholly assist us in every way we need.
My major issues with my amnesia and TBI long-term side effects were that I could not clearly describe the things I was going through - the changes occurring in my everyday life - the symptom I was dealing with - or how to express them to my Dr.
With the booklet I'm creating, it will have daily checklists, journal entry spaces, and all sorts of diagnostic information in which patients can fill out each day in order to share with their Doctors. Without this kind if vital information, it is VERY hard for Doctors to diagnose and treat their patients. It is impossible for doctors to know what is truly going on in the lives of their patients or how to help them without enough information.
I'm creating tee-shirts, tank tops, and various other things on teespring.
Here is the link to what is currently available (Until The End Of July, 2015.)
Please stay tuned for new designs and PLEASE tell your friends and loved ones about it, share the link, and encourage them to purchase these tees. Eventually, I'm going to mainly focus on the TBI, Amnesiac, and disability communities for the themes of the tees. For now, I'm creating themes that friends have requested I design. ALL of the profit will go towards my healthcare costs and to creating these (free for patients) booklets to be used with their healthcare providers. I'm working with my own Dr, nurses around the country, and neurological specialists in order to make the most out of this booklet, as well as my fellow TBI and Amnesiac survivors for input and insights on what else should be included in them.
They will forever change the quality of care us survivors and patients get, and the ease and wholeness of the care our medical professionals can give us.
(This booklet can be adapted in the future for ALL sorts of long-term health issues like MS, Cancers, Pain Diseases, Crohns, Alzhiemers, Mental Illnesses, etc, etc, etc...)
Thanks for reading, sharing, and spreading the word. I cannot do this without as much sharing and advocating as humanly possible. Thank you!
