I am wanting to get myself a medical bracelet (for epilepsy), something the likes of these:
I've never worn a medical alert wristband before and, to be honest, I'd don't really wear bracelets, as in, full stop. I very rarely even wear a watch on my wrist. I don't like jewellery - that goes for both bracelets and necklaces, by the way.
But I do want to get myself a medical alert bracelet. I will be travelling on the plane alone with my son, and although I very rarely get full seizures, the chance is still there, so I am wanting a medical alert bracelet.
But what kind to choose?
In addition to not knowing 1) what kind of a bracelet I'd like (because I don't normally wear them), 2) I also don't know what the benefits & disadvantages of different medical alert bracelets are.
To get a silicone one? Does the tag necessarily need that red cross and a snake symbol on it? Etc etc etc.
If you've got experience, share it, please :)
PS. So far I am thinking of getting a steel "tag" which I will wear tied around the wrist with string. Front would have red cross / snake design with word "epilepsy", the back would have my name, catamenial epilepsy and ICE phone number.
