I knew that you could buy medical ID bracelet's with allergy and illness info on them but what I didn't know is that I could buy one with medical instructions on it, like Do Not Resuscitate.
Years ago Ken and I filled out living wills, advanced directives and power of attorney papers for each other. All of my family knows that I don't want to be hooked up to any machines, tubes ect.. and I will not give or receive any blood or organs. It's against my long held beliefs that if I was meant to have extra blood or an extra body part, I would have been born with it. The idea of receiving someone else's blood or organs just makes me ill.
I figured since I already have the paperwork, it would be a good idea to have a bracelet just in case something ever happens and my family isn't around to let medical personal know what my wishes are.
I got mine online at Amazon.com and they engraved it for me and gave me a larger chain at no extra charge. I know this might seem morbid to some but I wanted to make sure my wishes were met.
Does anyone else wear a medical ID bracelet?
