    why even bother with the obvious. Just know where you are need it and where you can help the most.

    This dude sounds like he has hemophilia, so I will choose B.
    I used to pray and pray for a bike and never got one. Later I learned that God doesn't work that way... so I went out and stole a bike and asked God for forgiveness.

    answer is C

    REMEMBER
    that problems with platelets will be bleeding in the skin, gums but bleeding cause from a coagulation problem is big like hemarthrosis.
