A few years ago I put together a travel pharmacy that has saved me more times than I can count. When I go on a trip, or even somewhere for the day, this little bag is always with me.
Inside, I have travel-sized doses of almost every medicine in my cabinet at home, prescription and over the counter. It’s always stocked for the worst case scenario, and makes me feel more confident about going into a new environment where I’m out of my routine.
Here are some tips I would have loved to read before putting mine together:
In addition to my mobile pharmacy, there are some other migraine essentials I always travel with. I bring an eyemask, earplugs, cefaly and headphones in my carry on or purse. These are things you don’t want to have to wait until you get to your destination to have access to. A baseball hat and sunglasses are also game changers for me, especially when I have to spend the day going through bright airports. I like to travel with my small essential oil diffuser, and a few of my favorite oils that I use for pain, sleep and anxiety. Lastly, I always have a full water bottle and snacks. If I’m going somewhere with a refrigerator, I bring one of my own ice packs too, because…duh, migraineurs are very attached to their own ice packs!
I share each step along my road to wellness and healing and hope that in doing so I can inspire you along your own path. Thank you so much for being here.
