When you are first diagnosed with any medical condition, it comes as a shock, it is worrying, and it provokes the inevitable anxiety caused by anything that rocks your life. When the medical condition is a rare one like birdshot, which is sometimes hard to diagnose and can be even harder to treat, then you need all the help you can get.
The Birdshot survival guide has been compiled by a birdshot patient using input from many fellow birdshotters (as we call ourselves) and reviewed by medical professionals.
The purpose of the guide is to share handy tips that other patients have discovered on their birdshot journey. The hope is that this booklet will help others to survive the many challenges of being a birdshotter.
If you want to download a pdf copy of the guide, you can download it here. We also have it available as a booklet which we can post out to you.
