Hate them, love them, whatever: medical alert bracelets are still there, and should be worn every day. Mine is a love-hate relationship... sort of.
The hate? It does not bother me so much any more, but when I was first diagnosed with juvenile diabetes the idea of wearing a bracelet that literally alerted the world of it frustrated me. First off, I didn’t want people in my business (yes, I have continued to be asked ‘What does your bracelet say?’ and it is always a nerve-wracking answer). And second, who wants to wear a bracelet with everything?
I remember I asked my mom if I had to wear it to school. Yes.
[Eventually] to the prom? Yes.
[Even more eventually} when I get married? Yes.
Did anyone else feel frustrated by this? I was adamant at first that I did not want to wear a bracelet at my wedding or even at school. Quite frankly I thought it was lame. But then I learned what may happen when I don’tJ. I quickly got over it. (the love)
But I’m excited to hear what frustrated you guys.
Love-Hate Bracelet Relationships... that sounds weird ;)
