I just got my new ID in the mail. I was pretty wordy, but there was room, so why not?
FirstName MI LastName / BirthYear
City, State, USA
FAMILY (999) 999-9999
I'M NOT DRUNK. REALLY.
** DIABETIC / INSULIN **
DIAL 911, GIVE SUGAR
I put city, state and USA because I occasionally travel to other countries (mostly Canada, but I have also lived in Europe and...you just never know.)
I put FAMILY and the out-of-town number for the house where my sister, brother-in-law and mother live, because if I put my number on there, they'd be ringing the cell-phone in my purse.
I put "I'M NOT DRUNK. REALLY." because of the horror stories you hear of people going hypo in public and the people around them thinking they're drunk or stoned, including poorly trained police officers and EMT's. I'm not worried about this being false, as I have (at the very most) maybe two drinks a year.
I didn't mention T2 but just put ** DIABETIC / INSULIN ** because I don't want them under-treating me based on false assumptions about T2's.
I put "GIVE SUGAR" because I'm a T2 on a moderately low-carb diet and MDI. The odds are probably 1,000 to 1 that if I'm impaired in public it would be because of a hypo, not hyperglycemia or DKA.
So there you have it: my choices and rationale -- now if only my new bracelet wasn't so itchy. Sigh.
