Life Tips, Aortic Dissection & Marfan Syndrome

There is a new 'page' tab on our blog beginning this week, one labeled "Life Tips".
We want to add a new tip daily, sorted into a variety of categories.  Hopefully these Life Tips will help make your life easier, especially if you are challenged with cardiovascular dissection, aneurysms or a connective tissue disorder such as Marfan Syndrome.

Please feel free to submit your one-liner tips you would like to share, and let me know if you wish to have your contact info included.  If you wish to remain anonymous, please indicate your desire to do so.

Here are the first four Marf Life Tips from this week!  Hope they help.
  • LIFE:  Every morning, first thing to say is,  "my number one job today is to stay alive".   Dead, you are no good to anyone.
  • LIFE:  Progress is to me measured incrementally, in small advances.  Over time tiny accomplishments add up to great significance.  Do not expect leaps and bounds forward.  Take one baby step at a time.
  • MEDICATIONS:  Most all of  my prescription medications come from Winn-Dixie Pharmacy.  They have a $4 generic plan that saves me hundreds (potentially thousands) of dollars per month.  Wal-Mart has a similar plan.  Because at this time I do not have insurance, the Winn-Dixie $4 generic prescription plan is a life-saver.  Note:  Your doctor must write the script in one month supply increments to qualify for the $4 generic plan.
  •  SUPPORT:  Join a support group.  Facebook and social networks offer networking to real solutions and other people just like yourself.  This is so important.
