Shots for Shots
On Wednesday I had the pleasure of getting all of my shots for my trip for Africa. Turns out I also had to get a shot before my shots as many hemophiliacs could relate to. Infusing isn't a huge deal to me anymore (not saying I like it) but not many people even give a second thought to shots besides maybe not enjoying getting them. I would have to ask my parents to confirm but one of my first bleeds came from immunizations and I have gotten many since. Fortunately, I infused before going getting my yellow fever vaccine and polio booster so no bleed! Does anyone else have stories about having to infuse for vaccinations? Hopefully my mom can add to this also since I can't remember that first bleed very well.
