Here's an update on the bracelet issue:
1. Called MedicAlert and joined their program. ($39.95 for the first year)
Gave them all pertinent info: meds, doctor, next of kin notification, drug allergies etc. In return they will keep all info on file in case it is needed if someone finds me gone BOOGA-BOOGA and calls the number on said bracelet.
2. Bought the bracelet: ($19.95)
3. Paid for overnight shipping: ($21.00)
Total cost: $80.90
As compared to $7.00 if I had been able to find one at a drugstore.
When I questioned the lady about why the bracelets are not as available as, say, a diabetic's or hemophiliac's, she told me it was because they needed the information I had just given her about my disease.
She could not explain why there were bracelets for Diabetics, Hemophiliacs, Cardiac Patients, etc.
Could the reason be....... MONEY???
I don't know, y'all.
I just wish there were a Jonas Salk for dementia!
It's nice of you to visit me here. Please come back anytime
