Living with Hemophilia – Experience from developing country

By | May 12, 2015

“Growing up in developing country with hemophilia meant more than discomfort, pain or disability to me. It also meant isolation and detachment. I remember periods spent at home or in bed, away from friends and being excluded from school activities. At times, people were reluctant to include me in games viagra vs cialis. I give my parents great credit for teaching me that life is manageable. In many ways hemophilia made me stronger and gave me the drive to excel. Living with a chronic disease teaches you how to persevere and cope with adversity. I consider myself as community activist and advocate in achieving treatment for all those living with bleeding disorders in Pakistan.” Masood Fareed Malik
