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!
Oh Ryanne! That's horrible. I think all of us with any kind of chronic condition can associate with this: You see by the time I get to the hospital I am like a runner at the finish line. I collapse at hospital doors and am really not at my best. I am definitely not up for cross checking units of blood and i really don't feel like I should have to.Everyone I've ever spoken to with a bleeding disorder or any kind fo condition that lands us in the ER on occasions puts off going for as long as humanly possible. By the time we get there we're unwell, we've tried everything we're about to be asked (Ice, DDAVP, home infusion etc etc) and we just need someone to fix the damn problem!I wish I lived closer, I'd definitely be your hospital buddy! Is there anyone in the bleeding disorder community close to home who could help you out? I hope you get this resolved quickly.
Thank you so much Jenna you are a sweetheart! I really appreciate your support! xo
