How to Relieve Stress by Joining with Other Women in the Hemophilia Community

On Saturday, April 29, 2017, a special event took place to honor women in the hemophilia community living in Idaho.

Way to go, Idaho Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation! How exciting. Oh, I can just imagine how much this is really needed.

In a recent post, I commented about an inspirational mom who has two children. One is a young four-year-old boy who has hemophilia, and this means everyone in their family lives with the disease in one way or the other.

Events like the one that took place in Idaho are so needed.

You see, the mother I mentioned above was having a meltdown because she was tired, frustrated, and oh-so-loved her family, but she just felt beaten up (not physically, of course). Maybe she felt overwhelmed because she has so much on her shoulders? The responsibilities of caring for her son, trying to keep him out of harm’s way, and also being there for her young daughter—and husband!

It’s a lot to have on your shoulders.

So when I heard about what the good folks are doing in Idaho, I just had to pass it on. If you have the opportunity and actually attended the event please let me know! Hopefully you found reason to laugh and smile, knowing that you are not alone.
