CH "Sufferer" Card

Having attacks last weekend a few minutes after midnight on NYE amongst thousands of people at the Edinburgh Hogmanay celebrations, and also on the plane travelling up there the previous day, reminded me that I used to carry a card, issued by OUCH ten or so years ago, that was shown to curious bystanders if they tried to help during an attack.  I think the card disintegrated eventually and was binned!

Does anyone know if these cards are still available?

Cheers,

Martin

Hi Val.

I seem to recall reading a  post , some time back, about CH wristbands (presumably those plastic things).

Are they still available?

Hello,

does anyone know if the cards you can carry are still available? I’m really struggling with my CH and explaining to work too, they just bypass it as a nokrmal headache and don’t want to understand, any advice for this?
