"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 MyHemophiliaTeam
Here are recent conversations from MyHemophiliaTeam:
"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!"
