Wording For A Medic Alert Bracelet

Recommended Posts

I am going to have to get a new Medical Alert bracelet to include a few new things. Here's my dilemma, however... I am very sensitive to things like perfumes/colognes, most cleaning solutions, paint, anything with a strong, sweet smell...even something as benign as hand lotion can set me off into a severe reaction! Can I get away with just having 'Chemical Sensitivities' engraved?

Some people don't take it seriously, but I lose my ability to talk and breathe, among other things; and though I haven't lost conciousness at any time as yet I know that it is possible for it to happen. Should I also include 'Anaphylaxis'...or maybe 'Severe Chemical Sensitivities'?

Help!!!!

Here are some suggestions:

Severe allergies or intolerances to chemicals

Severe environmental reactions

Multiple severe environmental/chemical sensitivities I got that idea here:

Carriefaith,

Bless you! That article was absolutely perfect, and will serve as a good base for me to do some furthur investigating, especially as this might very well explain some of my issues like sleep disorders/difficulties - I haven't slept normally for more than 5 years now; most nights I may get at most 2 hrs sleep, many nights I don't sleep at all...

Again...thank you!!! *** BIG higs!!!*** :wub:

Wow. I feel for you! Look into the work of Dr Ritchie Shoemake in MD. He is very good at helping people with environmental and chemical sensitivities. He has also written several books, which you may want to read.

Google his name.

I'm glad I could help. I know someone with a really bad environmental(chemical) allergy and I know how serious it can be.

Thank you very much...will do! The scary thing is that I've become increasingly sensitive over the last couple of years... and I definitely find myself explaining things to people much more often. Things I've been able to (still) use are now starting to bother me, and I want to pull my hair out!!! :blink: Nope, can't do that either, I don't have any! * Beautifully bald - by choice! *

Carriefaith: Your friend is fortunate to have you! Most times people think that I'm jiving or being dramatic when I ask them not to do certain things / use certain products around me; that's one reason why I'm getting it added to my tag...I have to buy a new and bigger one, too! Thing is, I can react to almost anything at any time, which maked daily life very exciting!!! :angry:
