My ITP story began after contracting glandular fever. Before that I was fit and healthy and was rarely unwell.

I was diagnosed with ITP in August 2021 and have been living with it ever since. To begin with, it took its toll on my day-to-day life, making me feel tired and defeated, because I felt as though it limited what I could and couldn’t do.

Now I have learnt to enjoy everything I enjoyed before my diagnosis. My doctors have helped me to lead a normal life and taught me to live with my condition.
