As dangerous as it could be, I never use to wear my medical id. I hated the thing with a passion. I knew I should wear one, I just never did. So when it was time for me to go to college, my mom said that she wouldn't let me go (she wouldn't cosign my student loans ) unless I wore one. So we compromised. I had wanted a tattoo for a while, and she agreed that if I got some sort of medical tattoo that it was ok. So I did. I got "diabetic" in nice cursive on my left wrist. I'm not saying it's for everyone, but it works for me, and there's no way for me to ever forget it. Both my mom and I feel safer when I'm driving, and walking around on campus. And I talked to an EMT about it, and she said it's actually a smart idea for someone if they don't wear their medical id, and that emts actually look for medical tattoos now. She liked the idea so much that she was trying to convince her husband who has diabetes to get one as well. Not right for everyone, like I said, but it works for me.
