An early warning signs plan can be used to identify the different stages of how you're feeling and plan what action you need to take to deal with each situation.

Writing down how you're feeling can help you to notice the signs earlier that you need to do something to take care of your health. Having a plan in advance makes it easier to know what to do when you start to feel unwell, get worse or if your condition becomes an emergency.
