Description
The Medical and Dental Health Journal is a personal diary or book designed to keep you health and dental records. The book is broken down into sections such as Medical and Dental Journal Sheets for information about your doctor, questions and answers for your doctor. There is also a prescription holder for all of your medications. You will also be able to keep records of the whole family. You will no longer have to try to remember what the doctor said because it's all recorded and not just the doctor will have it.


The Story Behind This Book
My name is Diane E. Johnson and I live in Chicago, IL. with my husband, Lucius Johnson, Sr. We were blessed with three sons, Lucius, Jr., Carl, and Joey. In 1986 our oldest son Lucius, Jr., was diagnosed with HIV. By 1996, the illness had developed into full blown AIDS. The medications were relentless and changed like the wind. There were so many different medications, my husband and I could not keep up with them. Some medications were terrible on his digestive system and other medications made him sleepy. We were confused about what was working and what was not. Some of his doctor's visits were carefully recorded so we could follow the progress, if any. By the beginning of 1996, we realized the medications were totaling up to 15 or more a day and counting. I was amazed at the personality changes, dementia, lack of appetite, fever, chills, and lethargic behavior he experienced. Unfortunately, on Oct 1, 1999, at the age of 33, our son Lucius, Jr., passed away. With those days behind me, I only hope that I may be able to show others caring for a loved one with a long term illness, or just taking care of themselves, that keeping accurate health records is extremely beneficial. This record keeping allows the caregiver to give appropriate care in time of need. After this difficult time in our lives, my husband and I realize that keeping a health journal was first foremost a smart choice. I have continued to keep a journal for my husband and myself for the last 13 years, and those records are invaluable.
