Being Yourself Is More Than Enough

Posted on May 14, 2018

"After years of feeling like I need to be better, stronger, healthier, and in control, I now know I am enough." - Member of MyHemophiliaTeam

Members of MyHemophiliaTeam experience the burden of hemophilia physically, emotionally, and psychologically. Sometimes we strive to appear healthier than we are to avoid the stigma of bleeding disorders. Other times, we experience relief and support from others who've been in our shoes.

"I'm getting out of the rat race. I'm not hiding my struggles anymore. If I'm hurting, I'm going to rest. Hearing from others with hemophilia has taught me that I have to prioritize ME." -Member of MyHemophilia

Here are recent conversations from MyHemophiliaTeam:

"Even though I am so and hurt, it is a wonderfully awesome day. So be blessed and stay on the victory!!!"

"Well.. life couldn't get any better. I've got a job I've always dreamed about having and look forward to going every day. Six months ago I was at an all-time low and now here I am.

"Hey, friends even though I'm really having a high pain day I wanted to tell you all that I had asked my pharmacy for information about getting a vein finder for home use since I'm very hard to get a line in. To my surprise, they mailed me one the following week. I was so grateful! Never hurts to ask!"
