For years I have been thinking that I needed to get a medical ID card, but for years I have been putting it off. We all know how complex our medical conditions can be, especially those of us with dysautonomia, so it makes sense to have an emergency medical card in our wallets to identify our problems, drugs, and doctors. My Dad recently found a website that will create a printable id card from information that you enter into their system. The site says that they do not save or use any of the information that is entered on their site. The card lists your emergency contacts, doctors, medications, illnesses, and any allergies you have. You can print it out to a wallet size (front and back have info) and then laminate it for keeping in your wallet. It is also a convenient way to save space on your medical ID bracelet, since you can write “see card in wallet” for extra information. Pretty cool, huh?
This is just the first site that I have come across, so if anyone has other sites they have used, please post them in the comments so everyone can have options.
