Medical Alert Bracelet Search

The last couple of years have been full of surprises in my health. The most recent is that I have developed Addison's Disease. Addison's is a form of Adrenal Deficiency. Your adrenal glands are located near the top of each kidney and they regulate small things like, oh, your heart rate, potassium and sodium levels and the hormones that give you the ability to deal with stress.

Now that my adrenal glands have gone ca put, I have to take a new round of medicines and I have a great new Dr. telling me what I need to know. Other than that, I really don't like to do a lot of research- my mind wanders to all of the horrible possibilities if I know what COULD happen.

My Mom has also been the sweetest, strongest ally in all of this. She does the research for me, and talks me off of the cliff when I start to freak out. She also is there to give me advice. Her latest piece of advice is that I need a medical alert bracelet to tell people in emergencies about my condition. So to the Internet I go. If I have to wear one, it is going to be pretty!

Here are the ones I'm trying to decide between:

This is the Harper Medical ID Bracelet

This is the Lucy Medical ID Bracelet

This is the Finnigan + London Leather Medical ID Bracelet

(It comes with two interchangeable bracelets.)

I like them all, but I think the Lucy bracelet would be the most comfortable. Plus, I think once I get the nice silver bracelet I can make a beaded bracelet on my own. All I need to do is attach two lobster claw clasps on each end.
All three bracelets are from

What do you think?
