Was diagnosed with VWD Type II-B when I was a small child because of a massive amount of bruising. Turns out my paternal grandmother was diagnosed much earlier. I have had several large-scale accidents on bikes and motorcycles and glad for the previous diagnosis. I just noticed after lots of hiking some petechae on my lower legs and for the first time I thought about finding a community like this. Even though VWD doesn’t effect my life that often, it is still something I think of every single day and I am interested to learn how it may be effecting other parts of my life that I have otherwise just taken for granted.
