My Nose Bleed lasted hours, what works best? VWD

I regularly get them on my left side and have had it cauterized three times. I use a Tampon to help for a clot and stop it but this was a five tampon event in my nose over just two hrs. I also just let it run in the sink for awhile out of frustration! Should I use the DDAVP NOSE spray in this case??

Do any of you with VWD experience petechiae and fatigue?

For the last couple of months, I've experienced periodic extreme fatigue and I get petechiae (small red dotted rash) on my legs and chest. Are these typical symptoms any of you have experienced with your Von Willebrand Disease? What do you do about it?

How do I discourage my 17 yro. Severe Hemo. A son, not to buy a motorcycle?

.Hi, My 17 yro. Severe A son, is determined to buy a motorcycle. He has written and explained a 3 page report to me and his dad the reasons why he should be allowed to get a motorcycle. To me, this just sounds like the craziest idea in the world.--No exceptions!---A no brainer. But trying to convince my son is a totally different argument.
This would not happen right away, but probably within the next 6 to 8 mos.
I am searching for help from… read more

Health Insurance

I live in Michigan, and we have Childrens Special Health, that covers hospitalizations, factor, and supplies, with no cap.
I'm looking to moving somewhere possibly warmer in the future, and I'm curious about coverage in other states. I'm a very special, and severe case, and want to be sure I'll get the coverage that would keep me healthy.
If you care to share, that would be amazing.
