I.T.P is a rare autoimmune disorder, my body is killing my platelets. I go weekly for treatments to get me to the next week. It's like clock work every Thursday same time same place.
Sometimes I have to get treatment daily due to counts. The treatments aren't great and they are long. I miss a lot of work and have to use vacation time to make ends meet.
Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura will one day take my life and I'll bleed to death. I'm finally ok it and just want to live my life peacefully.
