: : JUST WANTTED TO SAY MY HEART GOES OUT TO YOU I HAVE AN ELEVEN YEAR OLD GIRL WHO WAS DIAGNOSIS 1YEAR AGO WITH ITP. THE MEDICATIONS CAUSE HER TO GAIN WEIGHT AND CHILDREN JUST AREN'T NICE WHEN A PERSON IS NOT THE SAME. HER PLATELETS RISE AND FALL CONTINUELY AND THE DOCTORS SAY WAIT. SOMETIMES ITS JUST TO HARD TO WAIT, I THINK I'VE CRIED MORE IN THIS LAST YEAR THAN I HAVE EVER CRIED IN MY LIFETIME. NOT FOR ME, BUT FOR HER WHEN SHE CAN'T PLAY SOFTBALL, OR VOLLEYBALL OR JUST SKATE AND THEN SOMEONE CALLS HER NAMES. LETS PRAY THAT OUR CHILDREN AND FAMILY MEMBERS BECOME WELL AND THIS DISEASE IS ELIMINATED.
: My heart goes out to you and your daughter. I will be praying for her healing--both physically and emotionally.
: God Bless.
You might like to look at a web site dedicated to those of us with ITP. There is also a Kids section, too. Its address is www.pdsa.org
It is the Platelet Disorder Support Association.
