Special Needs and Chronic Illness Medical Binder Printable

When Davy was in the thick of his medical complexities, I put together a binder full of information and notes that I took with me to every appointment.  I used the binder to track Davy's symptoms, log his meds and hospitalizations, record questions for upcoming appointments, and more.  It was pretty basic...loose notebook paper shoved in plastic sheet protectors and held together in a 3 ring binder.  Nothing fancy, but it helped me stay organized and on top of Davy's care needs, especially when we switched health care providers.

Then, last year, Davy along with two of his siblings and I, were all diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. 

I thought life was crazy before with just Davy's medical needs and many appointments.  And then we tripled it.

It didn't take me long to realize that I needed to set up a medical binder for each of us to keep everything straight.  But, I was too busy to do it so I kept the idea in the back of my mind and powered through the insane summer and fall months into winter.  And then somehow, miraculously, we got a break this week from any and all appointments. 

It was time.

During this past week, I've been working long hours to put together a special needs medical binder printable set, both for my family and for anyone else who struggles like we do.

I finished it this morning and it's already up in my Etsy shop, ready to download.  It includes 32 printable pages in non-editable pdf format that can be printed on standard computer paper (8.5" x 11").
