I landed on visual calendar. This could help me by showing what pill I need to take at what time and when to check my blood to see if I need insulin. I have always been a visual learner.
Thank you for doing the activity! I hope it showed you different ways to help you self manage your medications and weight gain. Now, you will take these strategies as part of your action plan.
Okay Bill, get ready to catch!
ONE WEEK LATER
I landed on pill timer. What is that?
Wow that sounds amazing!!!! I could definitely use that.
This is a great one Nancy! Pill timer's come in different varieties. The one I have for you to sample has a set time and the pill pops out at the exact time you need to take it with an alarm that sounds. This way, you can hear the alarm and know it is time to take your pills.
Welcome back! How did everyone's action plan go for the past week?
My strategy says make a schedule. This could help me with structure and I could go to the fitness classes with Joe as well to remain in a routine!
Alright Peggy, here you go!
Great! I love the fitness classes.
The pill timer is my new favorite toy. I haven't missed a single one!
I love the visual calendar but I think I need something more like the pill timer with an alarm along with my visual calendar.
The schedule is working well for me. I think I need more motivation.
This is awesome feedback! A key to maintaining self management is having a strategy that fits your person. This will be adjusted for success as we continue with groups. Bill, we can get you a pill timer to try for the next week. Peggy, lets have you attend fitness classes with Joe as a form of more motivation. I'm glad you like the strategies and we can go over more today!
