Transitions: Managing Your Own Healthcare What Every Teen with LSD Needs to Know

This workbook is packed full of exercises designed to help teens figure out how much they already are managing their own healthcare and how to uncover what they still need to learn and master to successfully manage their own healthcare. For people living with a chronic disease, like a Lysosomal storage disease, the teen years should also include a gradual transfer of medical care responsibility from parents to the teens themselves. As you might guess, it’s a lot easier to learn to do this slowly and with a plan, rather than jumping headfirst into a fast and confusing crash course of medical needs on your 18th birthday.
