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 greta799@yahoo.com. We want to hear from you.

What a Glorious Day!

It's hot and humid - absolutely miserable outside. 

My dog and I got soaked in an unexpected rain shower. I've been awake since o'dark-thirty and have been working ever since. (No, I'm not on Prednisone. I don't know why I have been so energetic)


Why Am I So Happy? Because of the wonderful compliments I've received for an article I wrote. The kind words have put me on cloud nine. It is a glorious day!

In my last blog post, I wrote about the healing power of the written word. It is true. Writing can release stress, tension, anxiety, anger, frustration, etc and helps our bodies to relax and mend.

 I write for a living, and it's not always fun. Most of the time, it's just work. But there are a few instances when a story or article is special. The kind that gives me a warm feeling inside, an inner peace. Like the article that was just published.

It's my ITP story. It took a while to finish because I poured my soul into it.When it was completed and submitted, there was a... (hard to describe) ... a sense of well-being. It wasn't because of the words I put on paper, so to speak, but because it was an emotional release. I was able to share an experience that changed my life. As a bonus, it may help someone else understand ITP.

That's why I encourage all my fellow ITPers to do the same thing. Write your story and post it here on our blog. Get the pent up worry and stress off your chest, and I guarantee you'll feel better. Several people have already committed to writing a guest post and I encourage more of you to think about it. Sit and let the words flow. Don't worry about grammar and punctuation, that can be taken care of later. Just let your feelings out. You'll be pleasantly surprised at the results. When you're done, send it to greta799(at)yahoo(dot)com.

Oh by the way, if you want to read my story, here's the link
