How Do You Deal With People Overreacting To Bruises?
A MyHemophiliaTeam Member asked a question πŸ’­

I bruise extremely easy with my May-Hegglin. Many times I have no clue what even caused the bruise. I like to wear skirts, dresses and shorts, but lately I dread wearing them because of my bruises and the reaction I get from others. I know I shouldn't care, but I don't want people to think I am abused either.

Be honest with people about your condition and how it causes bruising, often without you knowing the cause.

I just tell them it’s ok. I’m used to it. Its part of the bleeding disorder. But I have my had bruises like that since my diagnosis. Do you take your meds?

My youngest daughter has problems with bruising due to her Delta Granule SPD. For years I was accused of abusing her because of the bruising. Unfortunately, the only thing that has worked with her school/work/Girl Scouts was to educate everyone important that she would interact with.
