So yesterday I decided to play the box drum on my youth worship team. I got home and found out I had gotten bruises from practice. I had finally found a spot I was comfortable in, and once again, ITP ruined it for me. Im absolutely tired of having to deal with this. Its been a year now, and it's gone on long enough! Why can't this be over!?!?
Diagnosed in 1998, currently in remission. Diagnosed with Lupus in 2006.

Good for your doctor! I wish more doctors felt that way. After taking quite a few medications over the years for various things, including ITP, I can honestly say that the drugs can do more harm than the illness does. You're too young for long-term side effects that can destroy your health. Manage ITP with the least possible amount of medications.
