SOCORRO!  ou Dirigindo o próprio barco?

O que ajuda a se sentir mais confiante?

1. Saber explicar o que é hemofilia de uma maneira simples: ” quando eu me machuco e sangro, demoro mais tempo para parar de sangrar …e isso pode ser ruim para mim se eu não tomar o remédio rapidamente”

2. Aprender a fazer os exercícios físicos adequados para fortalecer e cuidar dos músculos e articulações do corpo. (Baixe federacao_brasileira_de_hemofilia_manual_miolo)

3. Não deixar de se instruir : na escola, colégio, ler livros interessantes, ver filmes inspiradores, visitar museus, conversar com amigos legais…….

S.O.S  or  Driving with confidence ??

Of course here I mean Driving in a metaphorical sense: be as autonomous as possible

by 1) like I always say try and practise a lot to explain hemophilia, a joint that is swollen, or the reason you are limping, in the most natural and clear way: the more natural you sound explaining even saying for example that you dont’ feel at ease with the fact that you have a target joint, or that you have to miss school sometimes, or just say“that you take more time than other people to clot properly… because something is missing in your blood.…. (I am repeating myself but i really believe in that)

2) Do and redo the physiotherapist exercises! your muscles have to be taking care off, as well as your joints…and only exercises done often can give good results and prevent more bleedings.

3) Inspire yourself with interesting READINGS, good movies, funny friends! music and art are the “guarantee for sanity” a great artist said (Louise Bourgeois)
