you are so creative- I just love it.  my DH has a weird unidentified allergy prob. too, to I'm going to make one for his to put in the briefcase.  and embroidering EPI-PEN is a great idea.  if only I could get him to stick a MA tag or something on his watch..... Thanks so much for sharing this great idea!

Grrrgh...  I guess that is the definition of when I trust someone and get close to them.  When I get to the point in a friendship/ relationship and I teach someone how to give me my Epipen shot, and tell them where it is kept.  Why oh why is trust teaching your friends how to stab you?

I do  the same thing. I think it has to do with freaking people out, before you indroduce them to the stabby interment of life saving weirdness, you have to be sure they won't completely freak and just avoid you so they won't have to use the epi-pen lol. luckily most of my friends though worked at camp cousellors at one point in thier lives so they fully trained in epi-pan useage. A few of them have even taken it to extremes. My best friend keeps one of my epi's at her house taped to her fridge and taught every one of her family members how to use it on the off chance I go over to her house while shes not home.

Unidentified allergies are horrible! mine was unknown for 2 years before I finally figured out. three allergists, my GP, a pediatrian, and two ear/nose/throat doctors couldn't figure out why I was choking at nearly every meal until I bit a pepper pod and my throat swelled shut instantly. have you tried writting down every item he eats? (full ingredient lists and all). I know someone else with a UFA and after 2 weeks of listing all the food she ate and when she had reactions she figured out what was causing her to react.

As for the MA, checkout the jeweller. A lot of them have knock off MAs that are actually fasionable and don;'t look like soemthing your grand father would wear. It won't link you to the MA network, but it will list med problem for paramedics and engrave something like 'see wallet card' where you can list contact info and treatment. thats what I have on mine.

Thanks for the reminder about the food diary!  my opinion is that is it a food dye but we are trying to confirm it.... he thinks that if the epi-pen fixes it we don't have to worry about why it is broken..... (HuhHuh? makes me crazy)  I'll definitely check for something "manly and not grandpa at the jeweler- that is a good idea.  I made him put a card in the wallet and the b/case, but I just want one on his person..... Thanks for the reinforcement!!! mkz

I think he needs a bit more info as to what an epipen does. It doesn't 'fix' it, it keeps him alive until the doctors can fix is a at the hospital lol. I learned that one the hard way....

It might be neat to add some fun fur to this doodad, for the same reason that the condom caddy on Knitty has it... to make it go from "distinctive" to "unmistakeable" in your bag!

I love the detail of the pocket on top, for the pills.
Great work!

You know, that would work great as a tampon cozy too.
