A bleeding disorder can be difficult to discuss, whether it is yours, your child’s, or another family member's.
Symptoms of bleeding can confuse – and even frighten – the people around you… and possibly may be mistaken for signs of abuse or other serious conditions.
But, of course, it is very important that the people around you understand how to address your, or your child's, situation in case of a bleeding episode.
Offered here are some basic discussion guides to simplify your discussions with people at school, play, or work. The doctor/nurse discussion can also be a useful tool to get answers for your own bleeding disorder questions.
