    I have a leather bracelet. I am getting a necklace for Christmas cos my work interferes with the wristband. My ring is now too big on my finger so I can put both on it and wear it while I'm working!
    Always make sure you tell the people you work or socialise or to school?? What's your jazzy new band is for!

    I carry a home card in my wallet which states I'm T2 and more importantly that I'm on a controlled opiate every twelve hours.
    If I was in a car accident or similar and couldn't communicate there is a danger of me going into withdrawl and possibly fitting but they wouldn't have a clue why.
    They also might want to fill me with opiates that I'm already full of and could easily od me.

    I have a metal bracket which can stretch out to put on and take off. It says 'diabetic type one'. ImageUploadedByDCUK Forum1411327802.262143.jpg
