A blog all about raising awareness for Women with Bleeding disorders.
I am a severe factor 5 Hemophiliac living in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and this is a blog about my life!
You are 100% correct Ryanne! Us Canadians are so fortunate to be able to live in a country where we know we will be treated according to our needs not the amount of $ in our wallets! Hope you had a great Canada Day!
I had a wonderful Canada day Carrie! Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and to write! I feel so blessed tobe from Canada! Hope you had a great Canada day too!
Hi Ryanne! I am 16 years old and living with hemophilia in Boston. Over the last year or so i have come to love and rely on HEMAWARE magazine for information and support. I saw your blog in one of the latest issues and decided to see if i could get in touch with another woman with hemophilia, which really does not happen that often for me...I was reading through your posts and had to stop and comment on this one. Because I live in the U.S., healthcare is required for everyone, but it's not always the best. Sometimes I really think about what dose of factor I should take considering it is a dollar a unit and my normal dose is 3 thousand units. Even though my dad says I need to take care of myself and infuse the correct amount, I still get worried about the burden I am putting on him. Just thought we had something in common and would let you know what I'm dealing with! love your entries...--A
