[IP] medical alerts



Ok, 
I was diagnosed in 1980 at age 4 and for the first 3 years went through 12
MA bracelets. (Kids can be tough on those things).  I went until age 12 not
wearing one at all until my parents got me a necklace instead.  However the
chain was huge and the alert medal was freezing cold against my skin. I am
not a vain person, but I also never wear jewelry.  So this bulky thing was
annoying.  I know I know...it is important.  However last year someone on
this list mentioned a site where one could buy necklaces for children.  Out
of curiosity I went and looked at the website.  I know own two of them.  I
got the short chain and it hangs at a comfortable level.  On the back I have
diabetic-insulin pump.  They are cute and do the job.  I never take it off,
I shower wearing it, sleep everything and pretty much forget it is there.  I
also can wear it on the outside and not feel like it is a "scarlet" letter
of sorts.  I am 23 now and don't feel foolish wearing them.

The site if you are interested is :  http://www.missbrooke.com/

PS - I don't work for the company and have no connection other then owning
two of their products. ( I have a gold bear and a silver puppy)

My concern was having Libby (my liberator!!) removed while I was unconscious
or incoherent, so I got a new MA bracelet that says "insulin pump" right
under "diabetes". They really had to work to get my penicillin and phenergan
allergies on there too!
