A Sick Day With A Planner

I'm home sick. I've actually been sick all week and had already mostly rescheduled my paid work for next week, but today it was "get myself to the doctor" time.

I still used my planner a ton.

I used the planner to look up the doctor's name and number and call for an emergency appointment. (If you call the nurse, you get an appointment if you have underlying medical issues, even if no regular appointments are available.)

I used my planner to schedule the appointment. A glance at my calendar told me what times were not okay.

At the office, I used my planner to give the nurse my updated medication list. I keep it in my Notes section.

I also took notes on my dashboard about what medications I should take.

I made note of follow-ups on my calendar and task list.

Then, I rescheduled or delegated all my previously scheduled appointments and tasks. (The little dash means move it to tomorrow or whenever I am well.)

Planners really can be useful when your brain is fuzzy from illness. And, oh, is it ever fuzzy today!

Hope you're feeling better! At least you have your planner to keep you company... I always have mine nearby when I'm stuck in bed. Take care!
