IF it is life saving, I carry it. The rest of my medication I sometimes remember if I have been flaring recently.

Dh has to have an epi pen with him at all times outside of the dead of winter. He’s deathly allergic to bees. We keep one in his lunch box, one in his car, one in my car, one in my purse, one goes to the superintendents office and one in the kitchen. 

My mom is a diabetic and she keeps her insulin pens in a really small cooler in her car.

i’m allergic to a couple of different medications, and to latex. so i’m “supposed” to carry an epipen with me at all times. but it doesn’t fit in my purse (those things are massive, they used to be so much smaller). i keep it in my bathroom, because it makes the most sense. if we’re going somewhere for more than a couple hours? i’ll bring it. or if we’re traveling. but most of the time? it stays in the bathroom. i usually have some benadryl in my purse, because that helps to keep any flares from becoming deadly.

AB Bride: i know! so irritating. i had one years and years ago, and the thing was tiny. now? they’re gigantic. i don’t get it. i think we should write to the company.

AB Bride:  I am supposed to carry an Epi and a rescue inhaler for asthma at all times. I suck at it. I am carrying a couple syringes with Benadryl vials from the last severe reaction I had. I do mostly good but I am not a fan of carrying purses at all times. Sometimes I kind of forget and just grab the wallet. The other day I had a scare at my mom’s because I had an asthma attack and thought I’d have to rush to ER. Luckily i had left one there. Whew…

This isn’t good for epi pins, but is useful for those who have to cary pills all the time and would like to do so conveniently and discretely –
