    Another problem I have is I often feel paranoid. I'm like "Why is this person doing that? Is it because of me? Did I do something? Did I cause this?" etc

    I don't hear about a lot of phones being damaged from people falling, but I also don't hear about little green unicorns, either! Maybe I am just out of the loop!

    Start with most recent and list in reverse Chronological order

    Emergency contact Phone#

    Personal Physician Name & Phone number


    I kept this in my purse and on my refrigerator for Paramedics to find and extras.

    Every time there was a medication change I updated it.

    ETA I think it would be easy to fall and damage a smart phone with all the information, so a paper backup is a good idea.

    Most people are so self-involved, they're not paying attention to anyone else -- they're just acting however they're acting because of internal reasons.

    Going back to your getting angry at reality shows - I know the feeling - I do too. I either stop watching the ones that push me over the edge (I'm no longer going to watch MasterChef), or I change my perspective.

    One perspective change is thinking of the winner (or loser) being determined by chance rather than by how well they did. For example, I used to get angry watching The Apprentice because one week Trump would fire someone for not speaking up, the next week someone would be fired for speaking up; one week someone is fired for not listening to a teammate, the next week someone is fired because they listened to a teammate rather than sticking with their idea; etc. Now I watch and enjoy the team tasks and watching the team interactions. When it comes to the boardroom, I think of Trump as a spinning wheel of chance - you never know who is going home.

    I don't watch The Voice or American Idol much any more. But when I do, I watch just to hear some good (maybe?) singing and watch how the contestants evolve over the course of the show -- and try not to get too invested in wanting a specific person to win.

    A telephone can get damaged falling out of your pocket or purse. I have seen damaged phones close to the curb and smashed. So someone dropped it getting out of a vehicle and someone else ran over it. A vehicle accident could also cause damage to a phone and other things and people. So ... a paper back-up is a good idea in my opinion.

    Unicorns are not little or green. tsk, tsk ... you certainly are out of the loop.

    Having one info list on or even in the frig too is good because the paramedics know to look for info there. Paramedics also have lots of questions ... so if you can give them a sheet of paper that answers most of the questions ... it saves time. If you show them your devices ... they than have to copy it ... that is ... write it down ... correct?

    Also ... things are more technical now ... and I started doing this years ago ... but my way still works ... and in the case of an EMP ... hopefully paper and pencil will still work too.

    My smartphone is backed up nightly to my computer . . . so unless I drop my computer ON my smartphone and break both, I'm good!

    I know TV talk is not allowed here but where else can I ask this:

    I wonder why a huge percentage of reality show viewers seem to be women over men. In that case I'd be in the minority. Just wondering.

    iphones are broken so frequently that there are mall kiosks to repair them. One of my grandsons works in one.

    Ask him about falls!

    As in "people falling" and breaking them, which is what was implied in the initial post that kicked off this madness. I understand the phones crashing to the ground, but I contend that it is usually from people "playing" with them too much....as in always holding them; my son wrecks several phones/year from dropping them. He can't understand why that has never happened to me! I can keep a phone (the same phone) for YEARS. I do not have a freak, tactile relationship with my phone.

    And Echo, you're right, I've not seen many unicorns. I think I must live in a bad neighborhood, or something!
