In denial

I was told way back when I had my Bypass surgery that wearing a medical bracelet was for people that wanted to draw more attention to themselves. They aren't really necessary and just for the attention seekers. So I blew off the idea. I mean it is not like I have any life threatening disease like the real people that need one.
Well today after a day of not much food and then a nice and healthy chicken nugget lunch I plunged to 59. I didn't even feel it coming until the anger bubbled up and I realized I was shaking like a leaf. See I get panicky, angry and shaky before I realize it is going down and that doesn't usually happen lately until I am about 60.
So after I test I pour some glucose tabs in my mouth and eat a granola bar for the long term fix. Then I proceed to lie in bed and fight off the feeling of a nap because I need to leave for work in 20 minutes. I hate when this happens. Today I think it took almost an hour before I really started to feel like I was coming out of it. My thoughts take a while to come back together.
So for that reason I am thinking I should be wearing a bracelet. If I am found on the side of the road I would want someone to know I need sugar and am not just a street person waiting for a bus.
I found a couple of places where I can order just the plate and I can make my own bracelet.
I'll show off my creation when I get it together.
