Getting dignoused with a DVT at 17 was the worst thing to happen to me.. After I found out what was wrong with me i went into somewhat of a depression. I had to miss my grad and i couldnt do anything i could before.. No sports, no walking around town. My life went down hill and the situation was getting any easier. After a while i learned to cope with my DVT. That was when i learned that if i wanted to get better i had to start living my life again and stop feeling sorry for myself. And b/c of that i got better before the doctors figured i would... So anyways I thought i would just tell ppl that if u have postive thinking u will get better. It worked for me. Well sorda it did. My DVT's are gone but i have a medical condition called a Factor V Leiden mutation, which means i am prone to clotting. And because of the now when I deicide to have children i will have to get shots in my stomach. OH so much fun. But i will get through with the support from my family and friends
