Bleeding With Mr. Ripley

Bleeding Painful

As many of you know, I am a hemophiliac. Recently, my blood brother, friend, and world famous hemophiliac, Vaughn Ripley, was encouraged to share his pain and treatment from a hip bleed.

I don’t have the best habits when it comes to treating a bleed, so writing about my own “treatment plan” is probably not the best idea. When my little blood brothers and sisters ask me for advice, I tell them, “here’s what I did, but you should talk to Vaughn.” Vaughn is a superstar and my go-to “hemo role model.”

If you’re a bleeder, I encourage you to read about Vaughn’s experience. If you’re a clotter (I’m sorry) and are curious about what it is like living with a bleeding disorder, I encourage you to read about Vaughn’s experience as well.

“Let’s dive into my latest hemophilia experience and how I dealt with it. On June 14th I had an accident on my skateboard while performing a stunt of sorts on a vert wall (think half-pipe). Before you say it… Yes… I know that hemophiliacs shouldn’t ride skateboards. Today’s post isn’t to figure out what’s wrong or right for a crazy hemophiliac to do. Rather, how I handle the agony of defeat.” [read more]

The Cli3nt

   I am 43-years-old, a hemophiliac, the co-founder of, a blogger at, part-time YouTuber (Geek Out! videocast) and Twitch streamer.
   I'm an old-school gamer, having started playing video games back in 1977 on the Atari 2600 (even managed to place 6th in Jafco's Atari Pac-Man tournament in 1982). I first began abusing games shortly after my best friend introduced me to Quake. By the time Quake II was released, I was addicted.
   After being found, in May 2008, passed out in front of my computer with a mouse cord wrapped around my arm and over 100 flash drives scattered around my body, I sobered up. To help maintain my sobriety, I switched to single player console gaming.
   In my life outside of the Wasteland, yes, I do have one --- wait, that's a lie. I have my Xbox One, Plex media server, high-speed internet, and Dax the Magnificent (my furry four-legged child).
