Diabetes Anniversary Present to self: a beee-uuutiful new medical alert bracelet from The Beadin' Beagle that will "alert the medics without alerting the fashion police." But will it?!

Take a look. (Nice, ay?)

But could it be too pretty? Should I pass out in an accident, would any paramedic (or anybody else) think to examine those charming multi-colored beads on my arm for evidence that I may suffer from a life-threatening disease? Considering that the ordinary, hospital-issue medic alert bracelets are often overlooked, I worry...

Knowledgeable comments welcome on this one, for sure!
