People always seem to notice mine... I've tried a lot of different types. It's gotten better as I've gotten older, so I'm hoping it'll stop eventually. Two of my jobs are also in the sort of macho places where weakness and illness are personality defects, so drawing any attention to it is pretty counterproductive.
I've ordered a medic alert watch for work. At least then I won't have to wear a watch and a bracelet.
That's really awful. I'm so sorry to hear that. That both saddens me for you and completely pisses me off. If they walked a mile in our shoes they'd be blubbering freaking babies.
