I wear the braclet 24 hours a day, at first I didn't want to but then I found out I could get the writing done in my favorite color(purple).Now I don't even notice it's there. People look at it sometimes, but so what, they look at my hands more, which shake like crazy. I also got the dog tags and wear those sometimes if they go with the outfitYou can get a note from the neurologist that inform the instructors what needs to be done in case it happens in class. Ours states that 911 does not need to be called unless the seizure is over 5 min.
Problem is... ER does nothing, except tests and sends you packing.
I like the dog tag idea though
Our EMT's have NEVER looked at her bracelet, though I make sure she wears it daily. Those that care about her know it is there, with my phone number readily accessible.
You might think I'm very irresponsible with this, but my way of dealing with my epilepsy is to laugh at it! I carry an ID card that I got from Epilepsy Action, it tells whoever finds me in a heap who I am, who to contact, what my condition is, and not to call an ambulance unless...blah blah blah, it tells them not to put anything in my mouth, and I've playfully written underneath..."Cos you won't get it back!" and where it says.."you could help me by..." and I've written..."Getting me to the nearest pub!!" I'm afraid that after 22 years with this condition, I can really only cope with it by laughing at it, what do you think folks?It's anonymous voting as always...
