Welcome To My Blog
Thanks for dropping by. Currently I’m 21, a university student, and I have Sickle Cell. This is a place for me to voice my thoughts and tell some stories – if you enjoy reading it then amazing! For now, this blog will just revolve around my feelings towards Sickle Cell and how it has impacted me – who knows whether it’ll expand in the future. I’ll attempt to do weekly posts so stay tuned. Happy exploring.
I remember talking to my mom about potential careers and all the things I was considering doing being crossed off one by one. Sickle cell does that in a way, restricts and constricts you. As a kid that’s heartbreaking – you’re supposed to see your future as one big possibility where you can do anything as long as you work hard enough. I was always a smart kid, nothing should have been out of my reach and yet it was.
Firstly, without my condition I would be in a much better position than I am now. This of course makes sense, without having to attend hospital appointments, take medication, be ill, worry about the cold or what I eat, why wouldn’t I be much further in life? But for me, without all that, I don’t know whether I would have learnt how to manage my health, or how to speak up for myself. Without my condition I feel that I would be in a much worse position than I am in now.
