I'm going to be traveling across several states next month alone and on a greyhound bus so I decided to get a medical ID bracelet. It's something I've been planning to do for years but have never gotten around to it. The most common way of buying is through americanmedical-id.com or similar sites and also websites to chain drug stores like Walgreen's. The way I bought mine saved me time I would have spent waiting to get it in the mail and I wanted to made sure I had it before I left. It's always a better way to make sure your information and size of the bracelet is correct. I got mine at a local affordable jewelery store where I had seen them before. Even if they were closed for construction the owner let me make a appointment with me. She made sure it fit and double checked to make sure that she had my correct information, then she engraved it onsite while I had lunch and a couple beers next door (I had already finished work for the day because I started at around 4 or 5am and as long as I don't be stupid I'm allowed to drink without it causing anymore damage to my shunt or messing with meds.). Below is a picture of my bracelet, a couple links and links to social media pages of the store I got my bracelet at. I couldn't get a clear shot of the bracelet but it says "Hydrocephalus" and "VP shunt" with my name on the back. Other medical conditions and medications can also fit onto the bracelet, on a card in your wallet or purse, or you can get a usb medical id bracelet where you can store information on it that can be reached anywhere where there's a computer.
