When I was a kid I wore a medical ID bracelet, and then at some point I stopped. I don't think it was a conscious decision, but I lost track of the bracelet and just didn't think about it for years. A couple years ago I decided I really should get a new one, and I contacted Medic Alert to order it. There's a whole registration process with Medic Alert, and when I had finished it I received a message that I already had an account with them, that was created in 1978; the year I was diagnosed. Pretty cool :)
So now I'm back to wearing my medical ID religiously, and since we're just days away from National Diabetes Awareness Month in the US, and a couple weeks from World Diabetes Day, I wanted to encourage all my friends on TuDiabetes to get and wear medical IDs. Personally, I think it's really important.
If you don't currently have a medical ID, here are some sites where you can get one:
