Its been awhile since I have blog about my illness, I have actually being doing good since last week, I was in pain and was trying to handle it so I could take my finals, but ended up going to the E.R Monday. Something told me I wasn’t going to be able to hold out that long, but I was planning on trying and almost made it. The trip to the E.R went good, everything came back good, so I didn’t have to get put in the hospital and that’s always good news to hear 🙂 I actually had made doctor appointment for thursday and had to cancel that appointment since my finals got reschedule for that date. I ended up seen my doctor the next day and of course put on more meds, I must say I’m starting to hate taking pills. Pills to prevent me from getting sick, pills to help with the pain, so I don’t have to go in the hospital or doctor. I must say I have being to E.R since June so thats good, haven’t being put in the hospital since June as well. I’m praying this good year for me. I need a good year, when it comes to school and my health. I know a lot of you all have been with me through all this, so you all understand where I’m coming from. I have a few days off, I start my new classes next week, and I must say I think I’m ready! This month is SICKLE CELL AWARENESS MONTH. I actually had good experience this time around, I wonder did I have a good experience with the nurses and doctors, because I haven’t being in for a while. It does makes me wonder. One of the nurses I’m use to was letting me know she’ll be leaving the hospital and taking on another career, something she be doing for over 20 years. She is pretty much the main nurses that know how to access my port, because some nurses just don’t know what they doing. All the good one’s have to leave. WHY? If you know someone, or you yourself have trait or the disease, go out and support the cause. ITS TIME TO GET MORE AWARENESS FOR SICKLE CELL DISEASE.
