The Problem…

This is a problem.

How do you carry all your medication? What if you are traveling to care for elderly parents like I am? What if you have kids to run to school and after-school activities? What if you can never find what you need because it’s in the bathroom medicine cabinet? Or is that the kitchen cupboard? Bedside table? Who really knows??? It’s like an Easter egg hunt on a daily basis.

You need to take your medication on time! You need to have medical papers with you when you are away from home. Accidents happen. Activities run long. The quick cup of coffee out with your friend… well you have a lot to talk about! We can plan. We do plan. Then life happens.

The solution?

The diaper bag! I never had kids so this little bag was completely foreign to me. I’ve carried one when I babysat, fully stocked with everything the little one may need… But. I’d never had the need to purchase one. Guys, these bags come in many shapes, sizes, and colors; find one. These sit perfectly behind your front seat. You can leave it in your car if you run into a convenience store for something… who’s gonna steal a diaper bag?

How many pockets do these bad boys have? Goodness, it’s a dream come true! I found this one on Poshmark for $12. Score. (I’m addicted to Poshmark.) I went into a few stores and just looked at some bags then searched for the one I liked until I found a reasonably priced diaper bag.

Now to get all of this into this bag!

And I did!

Ready for travel, no one is the wiser. Plus my therapy belt and some toiletries fit with ease! There is no problem anymore. I never have to explain my bag full of medications… I’m just carrying a messenger bag, that happens to be a diaper bag, that also doubles as a medication bag!

I feel like a lady spy!

    1. This was an incredible invention… I actually came across a sale post for “Adult diaper bags” for the elderly. First, what an offensive term for adults, second, they were ugly! So very embarrassing to carry, let alone use. Then I started looking at some real diaper bags for extra necessities for my parents… BAM. Medications! It was a great day! 😊🎉

    1. I have a few maternity shirts and some yoga pants too! I have a therapy belt I wear and the shirts are long enough to cover! The maternity yoga pants are just because I’m fat. 😂🤣😂 yes! The ‘nappy bag’ I absolutely love mine. The term ‘nappy’ is so cute. I may have to name my bag!😊💜

  1. What a great idea. Sorry to see you have joined the ranks of the ‘travelling to look after elderly family when already overwhelmed with fibro’. I’m sure there is an acronym with so many people living much longer than ever. I visit my Mum in the next state, more and more. Hope you are coping. Wish you would link up some of your wonderful posts at Fibro Friday again when you get time. Sending you love.

    1. Hi Lee! I would love to link up. I just don’t want to take advantage! So you are traveling too. I have 5 siblings to help so it is not too bad. Ofcourse I get the brunt of the week because all others are ‘working.’ I don’t mind tho- I stay at our family lake home and do so enjoy it out there… the payback days are rough when I get back home and thankfully, decreasing! So, I’ll go for as long as I can, as long as its needed. Assisted living will be in the near future. Until then, I’m happy I am able to help. You know. So glad you stopped by! Thank you for the kind comment and nice invation to post on The Fibro Blog Directory! Such an awesome group of bloggers! ❤
