Do Thalassemia Major Patients actually have confident in themself ? When you beileve in yourself that you had succeed in many things, that itself will make you feel much confident. That's based on individual, where you get and boost your confident from. It can be from reading books, watching film/movies, true stories you had seen and gone through yourself. Younger Thalassemia Major Patients might be lack of confident in themself, as they might compare themself to their cousin, classmate, friends or just anyone else they had met, giving themself so much pressure. Because of that having tease, make fun by friends cause them to be antisocial overtime. They might just wish to stay at home and locked up in their room. Just because they can't faced themself as a person. Some list of things, Thalassemia Kids/Childrens might think/feel they are different.

  • They feel their body build is smaller than people around

  • They have to go for regular blood transfusion and having desferal infusion every night.

  • They look may be more pale that people around

  • They are exempted from heavy exerise in school

These might be the few things, children are worried about. Parents, teachers and anyone close do play a big part in supporting/encouraging them. Explained to them why they need to undergoes treatment and that's life, no one is perfect. Normally that will help a lot and the children may start to think positive as they grow older, due to the things they enocunter later in life. That's it for now, do leave me any comment if you have something to say. I will see you later (:

Can you please tell me the price for a desferal pump.
I am a Thalassemia Major Patient at Monash Medical Centre and I was on the pump but now I am on Exjade and need to go back onto the injections.
The hospital no longer has pumps to provide.

Can you please tell me what is the price for me to purchase my own.
