ITP does not discrimate when it strikes its next victim. It affects the young and old, rich and poor all over the world. Dealing with this blood disorder is no easy task. The fear and frustration of not knowing where the roller coaster will take us next can be daunting.

This blog is for ITPers to express thoughts, feelings and lessons learned during their ride. Send your post to We want to hear from you.

This week's question is again from one of the ITP groups I am in.

We often discuss all the negative aspects of having a chronic disease but developing a positive attitude can be beneficial to our mental, psychological and physical health.

Today, I would like for everyone to list the positives of having ITP.

Some of the responses in the support group were:
     -- If I get Lupus, cancer or any other medical condition, it will be diagnosed earlier.

    -- I have met some wonderful people through medical services.

   -- Strengthen faith.

  -- Make me slow down and take care of my health.

  -- I've learned to live life to the fullest since I can't change things.

What are your thoughts? Has anything positive come out of having ITP. Please leave a comment. If you do not have a Google account, use the drop down box and use "Anonymous".
