Parenthood brings with it many surprises. From the moment they enter our lives, surprise! Yet in every thought I had about raising a child, I never once envisioned having to manage medications. When Jedi was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in August of 2010, however, a new world opened before my eyes. Keeping track of his prescriptions with refill reminders became a necessity.

There are two main resources we use to keep Jedi’s diabetes on track. The first are regular doctor visits. He visits his endocrinologist every 3 months where we discuss his blood sugar habits and make any changes in his insulin doses that are needed. Next, and for everything in between, I turn to Walgreens.

Walgreens has been our pharmacy of choice since the beginning of his diagnosis, and even before I had any prescriptions to fill. I always knew I could turn to Walgreens pharmacists with any questions I may have about my health or over-the-counter medicine I might need, because my mom always did. And now, I love how I can ask those questions in the comfort of my home online with Walgreens Pharmacy Chat. In fact, everything I need to manage my son’s prescriptions can be done through the comfort and privacy of home. They also have an app for that.

It’s so convenient to manage his prescriptions through Walgreens Refill Reminder Emails. And there are a lot to manage. Two different types of insulin, syringes, lancets, monitors, test strips, emergency kits, the list goes on. But when the reminder emails come through, all I need to do is reply and the prescription is automatically refilled. A quick trip through our Walgreens pharmacy drive-thru to pick up what we need and we’re on our way. It’s just another way that we refuse to let diabetes hold us back.

When Jedi was initially diagnosed, in fact he was still in the hospital, the doctor came in to talk to me about what was in store for us. I knew it was a serious disease, but the reality of the situation had yet to sink in with me. I do remember one thing, though, and I keep it with me to this day. He said, “If he wants a cupcake, let him have a cupcake. It’s ok to let him be a kid.”

And so I do everything I can to make sure that he can be a kid, just like every other kid his age. With minimum interruptions and good health. Walgreens helps me accomplish just that, all while hopefully keeping the surprises at a minimum.

    I rely on that reminder service more than I ever thought I would. I absolutely love that it not only tells me once but if I don’t act on it within a day or so, it reminds me once again.

    Each member of my family is on one maintenance medication. The refill reminders and notifications are a huge, huge plus… otherwise, I forget. Yikes!

    I love the advice your doctor gave you! I would have been reassured by this type of advice because I’ve always been one to err on the side of safety. #client

    @Kelly @ Texas Type A Mom, It’s definitely been reassuring, and a piece of advice I’ve really taken to heart since his diagnosis.

    If my husband’s meds weren’t handled through by the VA we’d use Walgreens in a heartbeat. I love their easy system. I keep sending reminders to my mom to signup for her diabetes meds but she’s a paper/pen kinda gal who hates modern technology.

    I love the easy reminders, I am getting more forgetful as I get older. It is so nice to have someone else keep track of refills for me.
