So, this Friday I am off to Toronto for the National Youth Committee conference for the Canadian Hemophilia Society. I am really looking forward it as I get to see a lot of my wonderful Hemophilia friends. I also have to speak at this session which I really enjoy so there is lots of things I excited about. However, I am also a bit nervous about it. Every time I travel I am always afraid of getting sick, either an infection of some sort, a cold, a flu or a bleed. I know that is very paranoid of me but on the other hand, it's not entirely unlikely that I would get sick. I haven't had a bleed since July so I'm kind of on the count down now until my next bleed. Not that I want to have a bleed but it is one of the only things I count on!
In anticipation of getting sick I am bringing my travel letter which outlines what to do in case I do have a bleed. I'm also bringing pain medication and about four different types of antibiotics!
Maybe I am being a bit of a worry wart but when it comes to Hemophilia I think it's better safe than sorry!
