Epilepsy Medical ID Braclet

I am going to college soon so is it a good idea to get a necklace or a braclet to wear that let's people know that I have epilepsy in case I were to have a seziure on campus or where someone doesn't know me? Does anyone else have one?

I am currently in high school. My bracelet also contains my medication, who to call, and the diagnosis. I wear it out even if I am out at the movies. It just keeps you safer.

Hi, KikiGirl: It's a great idea if you don't want to be taken to the hospital when you have a sz. I don't know about you but once I get to the hospital they typically just leave me on a bed in the hall. I'm typically "back" by the time I get there. I finally bought one several years ago bc I'm around a lot of strangers all the time. I was able to get it at a store that's pre-printed saying "epilepsy". I don't think they sell those anymore so need to go to one of the medical ID websites. Diana
