Do you ever find yourself overwhelmed and stressed when you explain alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (A1AT) to others? 

We know explaining isn’t always easy (especially when you’re not feeling 100%), so we created this digital worksheet to support you in sharing your thoughts and feelings. You can fill it out whenever you want, and then the next time a loved one asks how to support you during high-symptom days, or a friend doesn’t understand how your physical illness affects you mentally, you can share your worksheet.  

We hope this helps you receive more useful support from the people around you throughout your A1AT journey.

P.S. This digital worksheet is downloadable, printable, and shareable!
