I’m Launching Another EBook!
Posted on January 16, 2017
In 2015, I published my first book, HOW TO HEAL A BRUISE.
In 2016, I published my second book, BELLIES, BABIES AND BRUISES.
Bellies, Babies and Bruises is a book very close to my heart. I wrote it while pregnant with my son. I documented everything about being pregnant with ITP, as it was happening, while researching ITP and pregnancy complications and interviewing other women who had gone through the ITP Pregnancy journey.
BELLIES, BABIES AND BRUISES is a collection of stories, treatments, hope, pregnancy, miscarriages, blood tests, and births; from women with ITP.
It was my intention to put the humanity back into ITP childbirths, at a time when it can be all about numbers, blood tests and results. It is a short book which was always intended to be read quickly while waiting for doctors appointments.
My first book, HOW TO HEAL A BRUISE is about living with ITP, immune thrombocytopenia. I was diagnosed with immune thrombocytopenia when I was 22 years old. I struggled to read dense medical journals and scholarly articles to learn more about ITP. What was missing from the ITP conversation was information from other patients, about what immune thrombocytopenia was really like.
In 2012, I set up ITPANDME. Three years later, it’s one of the largest ITP blogs in the world.
HOW TO HEAL A BRUISE is an account of my journey with ITP, as well as practical advice for living with ITP and information from some of most popular articles.
This book takes you through the stages of ITP from coming to terms with your diagnosis to finally accepting and thriving with ITP – What to expect while living with ITP and how to make sure it doesn’t take over your life.
