I am making my annual trek to my family for Christmas. In Christmas, Family, & Traveling with Epilepsy, I talked about the preparations that I would make for my trips.
Last year, I was taken to the ER while visiting my family in another state. I wonder if there is something I can do to prevent a repeat of that incident.
In the past, I brought along a mp3 player (iPod) to listen to meditation / relaxation music. It helps keep me relaxed during the flight. However, my mp3 player died, so I will have to try to find an affordable replacement before the flight.
My neurologist bumped up my meds since the incident. I will need to double check my Medic Alert information to make sure it is correct. I already have enough medicine to last until January, so that will not be a problem.
I need to call my health insurance company to find out what sort of coverage I will have when traveling out of state. I changed my insurance since last year. If something does happen, I hope they will at least pay for some of the ER bill.
Do you have any recommendations for my trip? What has worked for you when you last traveled?
