If your on Disability or any other type benefits or are experiencing hard times (all to common in our current economy) MedicAlert offers "sponsored memberships" which pay for the membership and I believe a certain type bracelet as well. I have used it in the past. MedicAlert can't be beat IMO.I'll be ordering one of these through the medic alert foundation next week when my pay comes in. So broke until then due to not being able to work!
Wow! As a 30 year veteran of Epilepsy AND a Paramedic who has worked the streets for the past 17 years, I am a little disheartened by the 16 pages of posts that I just read through.
I can understand that completely. I don't like the feel of my medic alert bracelet either but I wear it. I got what I think was called the "sports" bracelet that is on a Velcro strap instead of a floppy chain.I've only begun wearing a watch in the past three or four years, and I am mostly annoyed by the feeling of "hardware" hanging on my body.
