What I hadn't appreciated was that all my appointments and diary are on the PC with suitable reminders. I nearly missed an appointment with the DSN at the clinic this week! Fortunately my hubby reminded me and it was at the local hospital and not the county hospital an hour's drive away.
Phew ! Glad you made your appointment !
I have all my appointments and important info on my iCal on my computer. It's great and also good to refer back to over the years to see when we did this or that or saw whoever or had whatever appointment. But I've learned the hard way to always enter all my very important appointments on a paper calendar as well.
I and dh, who worked in computers, that's where we met, were thinking both when our GP's computer went down a couple of years ago and when the NHS computers were hacked this year, and appointments all disappeared, that both the GP and the NHS hospitals should have had a paper system in place as a back up. I don't know why they didn't. What happened, and what happens when our computers go down or the internet goes down or our computers aren't available, shows just how dependent we have become on computers. It's only in the past 20 or fewer years that this dependency has become so extreme, it's crept up on systems and individuals without people realising that a paper system is still needed in addition to computer system.
