In her latest column, Alyssa recounts a recent getaway and all the planning that went into the trip. For her fellow bridesmaids, it was as easy as throwing together a weekend bag. Alyssa, however, had to bring all her medical equipment, as well as medications and extra clothes in case of emergencies. She says, “There’s an unwritten rule that when you don’t pack these nonessentials, your machines will undoubtedly not work.”
This is something I can really relate with. My parents and I have packing down to a science, especially when it’s a weekend getaway to our place in Wisconsin, but it’s still a drag, having to pack so much stuff for such a short amount of time. I often wish I could go on a spontaneous trip and not pack much of anything, but as we all know, SMA has its own ideas.
How do you approach traveling?
