Abbi and Ilana may be young and vivacious, but they put a lot into maintaining their bodies and minds. Whether they’re purposely pushing themselves to the brink of anaphylactic shock or getting their smiles repaired by their favorite sexy dentist, the BFFs take great care of their wellbeing. Get your life together with these tips.
KNOW YOUR BODY
Nobody knows the ins and outs of their own body as well as Ilana, and that includes being able to navigate a severe shellfish allergy. As a veteran of the allergy game, Ilana fills up on all the deadly market-price goodness her body can handle until it’s an EpiPen-or-death moment. No big deal.
TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR MENSTRUAL HEALTH
There’s nothing worse than when your period catches you off guard — especially when it happens midway through an international flight. Fresh into that first-day flow, Abbi scours the plane for a tampon, while Ilana — a true BFF in a moment of crisis — fashions one out of any available materials. Anybody got a pita?
BE PROACTIVE IN AN EMERGENCY
Accidents happen, which is why it’s important to take control of these situations. When Ilana’s veneer falls out, she doesn’t hesitate to book a dentist appointment with her paramour, Lincoln, even if it means she has to own up to a past oral embarrassment.
ENLIST A CARETAKER WHEN MEDICATED
Anyone who’s gone under anesthesia knows how important it is to recruit a keeper — someone to be your mother, father, sister, brother. When Abbi gets her wisdom teeth removed, Ilana reports for duty, helping with everything from transportation to medication, even researching the operation through the Mayo(nnaise) Clinic. What could go wrong in caring hands like these?
