I was "outed" ONE time. It was during the time that they were hand searching about
every other carry on bag. Yep, the
opened my faux cosmetic case and started asking questions. I pulled out a credit card sized medical information card that explained that I had a medical condition called an ostomy and that I would appreciate it if they would be descreet about
their search. They immediately took me to a closed room, with glass in the front and continued their search. It wasn't the best of circumstances but WAY better than standing in front of a crowd of people. My DH has a pretty high security clearance so he is used to jumping through ropes all the time. Me, well, I was just prepared. Of course, I totally spaced the thing about
carrying on weapons, and they confiscated my good pair of surgical scissors that were in the cosmetic bag!!! That was the only time out of all of my travels that I have been "outed"!!!
