I got some unhappy news recently. I was put on birth control to help manage my PCOS a few months back, and it resulted in a DVT diagnosis last week. I don’t normally share these types of things on my website, but I mentioned on social media that–because of the blood thinner I’m on–I had to buy a medical ID bracelet. I ended up being switched to Metformin as a PCOS maintenance drug, which says right on the bottle that you should wear medical identification so people are aware you’re taking it.
With that in mind, I went shopping for an ID bracelet that wouldn’t depress me every time I glanced down at my wrist. I found one that I loved from Lauren’s Hope, and it arrived a few days ago. It’s even more beautiful in person. It’s got a nice weight, and the length is exactly what I wanted.
(I recommend following their measuring guide exactly unless you want yours tighter as a personal preference.)
This is the bracelet I bought. It’s the Harlow style. (What are the odds, right?)
I’m sharing a bit of my story and this link because of the overwhelming response the images received. It’s my hope that, if you’re required to wear one, that you can find a style that suits your personality instead of being stuck with a clinical reminder of why you need to wear one in the first place.
