Sometimes with PTSD, the symptoms can get bad enough that they may resemble signs of a stroke or heart attack. I don’t want to be accidentally treated for either of those.
The other day a friend a mine suggested that I get a set of dog tags made as a type of i.d. bracelet. So I went online and ordered a dog tag with my name, dob, PTSD, and my wife’s name and number. I figure as long as they can reach her, then they can get all of the other info they need.
I thought about just going to the pet store and using their machine to create a tag, but the metal those machines use is a little thicker aluminum than a normal dog tag. I wanted as little weight as possible, so online was the way to go. You could also order a set from many military surplus locations that would be the same metal and weight of standard military issue dog tags. If you’re going to order a pair, I think the weight is better on the stamped tag as opposed to the engraved one.
