6 Ways to Help Your Child with School Phobia (Social Anxiety)

Back to school season is here. Children are getting ready to go back to school. Some are excited about it, but some are not so much. For the younger age’s group, some of them tend to have a hard time leaving their parents to school or they are anxious about school for a variety of reasons. School Phobia as know as School Refusal is children who have problems going to school or staying in school.

Here are some tips to help the children who are facing that issue.

  1. Self-help methods could provide relaxation to your child. Be open to new ideas
  2. Communicate with your about their feelings of school or in general
  3. Work with school staff for extra support or direction
  4. Schedule an informal meeting with your child’s teachers.
  5. Help your child to create hobbies and interests (Sports teams, Clubs, etc)
  6. Emphasize the positives about going to school. (Friends, New Materials, etc)

Most importantly, your children need your support to get through those situations. As long as they understand you will be there for them with their physical and mental supports.

A Case of Iritis

It’s a scary situation when one day you can barely open your eye and when you did, all you can feel is pain. Not only was it painful but also your eye looks like it had been lit on fire. This was a scary thing that happened to me. I had no clue what had happened to my eye.  I did what every typical person would do I called my doctor. I went to urgent care and was diagnosed with Irisits. What the heck is Iritis? In simple terms it’s inflammation located at the iris of the eye. When the iris is inflamed, white blood cells (leukocytes) are shed into the anterior chamber of the eye where they can be observed on slit lamp examination floating in the convection currents of the aqueous humor (http://www.iritis.org/index.php). The doctor told me Iritis could develop from an autoimmune disease or spontaneously happen. In my situation it was spontaneous. For the first few weeks of treatment he gave me two eye drops to take Cyclopentolate Hydrochloride Ophthalmic (dilating solution to prevent scaring) and Predinisolone Acetate (steroids to reduce inflammation). It was imperative I take my steroids drop every hour and my dilating drops every 4hrs. Remembering to take these drops was a challenge for me with my busy schedule. I had to find a solution to my non-compliance. I found the e-pill Multi-Alarm TimeCap http://www.epill.com/eyemed.html to be very useful. Not only did it carry my eye drops it reminded me to take and told me when I last used the drops. Who would have thought a tiny little pill bottle would keep me on track with my Iritis medication drops.

What will the cost be for Mom’s or Dad’s automatic medication dispenser?

Helping your parents manage his/her medication can be a challenging task to take on. Taking their medications correctly and on time is crucial to maintaining a healthy life.

The current system you have set-up probably entails you to sit down with them once a week to sort the different pills they take. You probably call them daily to tell them “Mom/Dad take the blue, white, red, pill at this time now…. etc.”

More pills mean more confusion on when and how to take them, especially when they are prescribed medications. The consequences of taking too much or the wrong kind can be deadly.

E-Pill Reminders Take On The Food Industry

E-pill isn’t just a great medication reminder! Now the food industry wants in on the benefits we have all been receiving. They are starting to use the popular e-pill medication reminder known as the Multi-Alarm Pocket XL.
This device is now being used across the United States in your local fast food restaurants. That’s right, this reminder device is now a food timer. With up to 37 daily alarms and a missed “pill” indicator, it is no wonder why food industries would also want to take advantage of this great e-pill.
 Popular fast food chains are required to use time tag systems in which they must check on different food items at different times throughout the workday. Depending on their color-coding system, different foods are to be changed at different times. The Multi-Alarm Pocket XL works great in these situations because of its ability to alarm up to 37 times on the hour and half hour. This gives the workers a reminder to check on the food items at the correct times throughout the day, without missing a beat!
Just as it is important to take your medication on time, it is important to make sure customers are receiving the freshest food. It is during those chaotic times at home, or in the kitchen, that the Multi-Alarm Pocket XL will help to remind you to stay on top of all your daily duties, whether it be taking your medication, or turning over food to maintain high food safety standards.

"Save Yourself from Reminding or Texting Mom or Dad Everyday"

Do you think it’s not a big deal to help manage your parent’s medication? Think again! According to the American Society on Aging and the American Society of Consultant Pharmacist Foundation there are
125, 000 deaths each year due to medication non adherence.

Medication nonadherence can be a major problem for any age group, especially to your parents who are prescribed multiple medications due to health conditions. The health consequences are extremely harmful or even deadly.

In an effort to improve medication adherence you, as their son or daughter will organize medications using simple pillboxes and contacting them daily via phone to make sure they’re taking their medications on time.
This daily task can be overwhelming for both yourself and for your parent. This task can overtake your life. From the perspective of your parent, it may seem that you do not trust or feel they are competent to manage their own medications.
As a solution there are several companies offering many different types of reminder devices such as watches, pillboxes with timers and automatic pill dispensers. One unique item e-pill, LLC is offering what is called the CADEX 12-Alarm Medication & Medical ID watch.
