: Hello

I'm 26 and was diagnosed with TTP in 1993. I have had 5 occurrences and am currently hospitalized. I've been in now for almost 5 weeks this time. My longest stay was 3 months. I've been treated with prednisone, plasma apheresis, plasma exchange, persantine and the new focus is vincristine, which I started today as a one minute IV push. I have not had renal failure but I worry about it. This has been my worst episode. I was incoherent and unable to speak. I slurred and constantly got sick. It was awful. Well, I hope to hear from someone. I need support while I'm here. Thanks, Tarika Blizzard
