|On the drive home and wearing my Lauren's Hope bracelet the Saturday after Thankgiving, somewhere
in North Carolina - I-40
Yep, I was going to drive the between 600 and 700 miles each way solo because I'm a big, brave, grownup lady.
Cut to 4:30 pm and me checking in made to my Richmond, VA hotel and settling in my room.
Then I noticed I wasn’t wearing my ID bracelet.
FYI: When your drive long ass distances by yourself you have a lot of time to think.
My somewhat irrational fear of driving almost 700 miles by myself was replaced by the very real fear of not having my medical ID on my person.
The trip back home stretched out over two days and except for the crazy traffic on 95 once I hit Baltimore - everything went off without a hitch.
Disclosure1: Lauren's Hope didn't charge me for my bracelet.
I told them I was going to write about what happened because I was so damn grateful and if it could happen to me, it could happen to you and I wanted you to know that you had options.
I didn't expect anything in return, but it was nice that they did,
Disclosure 2: I own 4 LH bracelets ( 3 before Thanksgiving,) and after what happened I decided to become a LH affiliate - which means I will get a very small percentage - and only if you decide to actually order from LH - and after clinking on their links on this site.
Any monies raised will go towards domain renewals for both diabetesaliciousness and IwishPeopleKnewThatDiabetes.Org and insulin.

I never want you to think I'm not being honest, so I'm telling you upfront.
Lastly, it doesn't matter to me where you or your loved ones get your medical IDs.
What matters most to me is that you and your loved ones WEAR your medical IDs.
