It’s Summer – Don’t forget your EpiPen!

A 0.3 mg EpiPen auto-injector.

It’s summer officially. My favorite time of year! But, that also means the Bees and Wasps are out. As I have a life threatening allergy to both, we don’t like each other very much. I carry an EpiPen everyday of my life in my purse.

I thought I would remind those of you, who are like myself, the importance of that Pen to your life.

Check the expiration date on your Pen. Expired pens will not give the necessary dose.
Make sure you always have your EpiPen with you.
Make sure the people you are with know how to give you a shot. Basically, you pull the top off and shove the needle into a leg or arm. No need to aim for the heart. lol. Just hit the arm, get to an ER or call 911.

Although it’s not always necessary to go to the ER after receiving a shot, it’s usually good to be checked.

I was just passing the info along as my doctor just reminded me of the importance of always having the Pen with me.

Peace, Love and Happiness
I wish you all sting-free summer!
Linda

About Linda Long Writes

I am an individual who believes in man's ability to overcome adversity and triumph. Life has taken me on many journeys. But, the most important trip I've taken is the one that leads right down into the bottom of my soul. That's where I live. I am an open person and willing share, encourage, and befriend all like-minded individuals. I live and practice the Law of Attraction. I practice Gratitude and Giving every day as a way to source my own personal and spiritual growth. I am Yogini and plan to pursue teacher training in the next year or so. As for my blog, my blog is written from the heart and is about my quest to the best I can be in this life. And, I also post my authentically written poetry on my blog. A couple of notes about my blog: 1. I post three to five times a week depending on inspiration and the flow of creative juices. 2. I ’m always looking for inspiration. Please feel free to send me a message with suggestions or suggested reading materials. 3. My blog is considered a “lifestyle” blog. It is based on self reflection and personal experiences. At times, my blogs can be a bit heavy, deep or overwhelming. But, at other times, they are just plan filled with the nonsense and garbage in my head. Either way, they are honest, genuine offerings coming from within my soul and, hopefully, touching yours.
