Was wearing one years before I was a Catholic. Gave the one I wore for years to a friend's daughter who was having a tough time in school (she's in college now and doing extremely well). Still have one on, never take it off.

That was very nice of you, AAM. I have one on at all times as well. I have one that I only wear in the shower, and another that I have on a chain with the other medals that I wear (one that has St. Joseph the Worker on one side, and St. Dymphna on the other; one that has St. Francis de Sales on one side and a Sacred Heart design on the other; and one that has St. Philip Neri on one side, and Mary as Regina Angelorum on the other, which I got at Brompton Oratory).

I have on the Miraculous Medal I got from St. Catherine's Metal Works (see the Catholicity website for details) and a brown scapular from the Franciscans. I even kept them on when I had a CT scan once. I just put the Miraculous medal into my mouth for the 5 minutes it took!
