Awareness bracelets/bands?
« on: March 26, 2010, 02:40:51 PM »
Hey everyone.  Long time sufferer (is that a word?) but just diagnosed this week finally. 
+ ANA and + Lip biopsy
Wondering is Sjogrens has an Awareness bracelet / rubber wrist band like other disorders do?  Any info would be great.  A link to where I can purchase them would be better.

Well since April is right around the corner and that is Sjogren's Awareness month that would be nice.  I found at a website that said purple is for sjogren's. There is also websites where you can choose your own writing.

Hi
I wear an 'awareness' talisman. I internet searched 'medical talisman' to find a site. I have a pendant and a bracelet and inside they have 'concertinad paper' with conditions and mediactions + docs and addresses on.

Take care - Scottie  :)

Get a fat rubber band and a purple magic marker, voila, you have a Sjogren's wrist band for free, watch out Martha Stewart. :D

What color is for SJS?   On line it says purple, but at the Sjogren's Patient  Conference we were told it was bright blue.

Does it matter?

Thanks.
