    I actually wrote a blog post about it on my personal blog! Some of the things I have include:
    A bag to carry items.
    Extra pair of pants and underwear.
    A towel for any cleanup that may be needed.
    My Medical Alert Restroom Access Card.
    Small bottles of water. This is for cleaning purposes and to take medicine if needed.
    Medical examination gloves. These can be obtained in any medical section of the grocery store or pharmacy. I have these so I can handle any soiled items without too much of a problem.
    Baking soda (this will absorb odors and extra liquids for easier cleanup). I will sprinkle this into a trash bag with any soiled items.

    Hello! I am newly diagnosed. I was wondering where you get a Medical Alert Restroom Access card and what (besides the obvious) it is used for. 🙂 Thank you!
