Know where reliably has fairly clean restrooms and no key. I tend to prefer fast food restaurants over coffee chains-particularly if it isn't my regular coffee stop (no key at that one-but sometimes a line)
Know the location of restrooms in all places you frequent-even if you don't usually need to use them.

The WebMD Health Record allows you to input all that info and print out a copy. It is so handy to just be able to hand it to them rather than spell names, try to remember how many milligrams something is, etc.
You can of course, type it all up in a document-but I rather like the health record. I keep a copy updated for my mother-so that if she needs to go to the hospital or even the doctor-we have everything on hand.
The hospital where I lived in the past was about 6 blocks away-so it was no big deal to ask my partner to bring something. Now--further and more traffic. If I was still in bad shape-I totally would have pre-packed for myself.View Thread
