The question isn’t should you wear or not; the question is do you choose to?
A special bracelet was made especially for me as a gift; only the charm has the medic alert insignia on it with diabetic written on the underside. It is so tiny, I have often wondered if a paramedic would even notice it given an emergency.
Decidedly, it is the minimum i.d. I could possibly wear. I also carry the diabetic identity cards in my wallet, which I believe could be very useful, unless I am found unconscious without my wallet -- a very likely scenario!
As I began a new job today, and as I rushed to take my daughter to school and make it into Kensington on-time, it occured to me -- why am I playing with fire? It is such a simple, practical issue. Why have I neglected this one fine, but critical point?
Am I too confident?
Hmmm…I think it is time that I considered the implications of not wearing an authentic diabetes ientification.
Here is a list of resources for those who are in a similiar state to me! I have heard Lauren's Hope has great things (I would always choose items with a higher visiblity quotient at this point) and is reliable.
