Day 4-5 Living With Sickle Cell Anemia

thumbnailSCDHey and Welcome to my World, I’m still in hospital and hopefully I get to come home tomorrow. I should know something in due time. I still can’t have transfusions, but it seem the meds they have me on is finally working and that makes me happy! I have been on some new meds since May, and ready to get off it. I’m actually on a lot of new meds, but this meds I really ready to get off because it’s interfering with some of my other meds, that I need on everything basic. Sighs. It feels good to finally get some sleep, I believe I’m still tired, but I’m actually on my last week of studies, and I need to try to catch up before the week is over with. So much to do in so little time. I have had some great nurses, had one rude nurse name Mary. Makes me wonder how she got a job to be Nurse Assistant, if all she does is complain, I would hate for her to be nurse, and she says she going back to school for it. Well, I hope peeps run the other way and don’t look back, I’m just saying. My bestie mom finally came home from the hospital the other day, and she is doing much better, but got heartbroken phone call, that she is not her self, she lost some of her memory. I spoke with her a few days ago, she knows who I am. It breaks my heart when strong woman a God is struggling the way she is. It’s truly breaking her daughter heart, because she want to take care of her mom and not rehab place. Doctor just told me not to long ago that my retic count has come up, I’m hoping to hear my blood count has come up as well. I’m praying for some good news. Looks like my head is everywhere with this post, please do forgive me. I have a lot going on with me at this time. Thank you all for the prayers, truly means a lot to me. I pray all is well with each and every one of you. God Bless 🙂

      5. And im not on FB rt now lol tired of some of the mess i see ppl supporting and sharing…esp if its negative. I get NO support from my fam or friends on their or for that matter period. Some find it gard to conceive being a writer, poet, or just being independent in your life journey. I will never be happy working for the man…im an entrepreneur be nature and before I leave here, I WILL leave my mark and ppl will know my name. Its just sad that my parents dont understand or support any of my ventures but i have a husband that believes in me and thats enough. Yes, school runs so mucj smoother when you have good professors. I ended up postponing school cuz my professors last semester were jerks and they influenced my decision. We would have nothing and be nothing w/o Him. Glad to know Him personally and thankful as well for His love and blessings. AMEN!!

      6. Its rough when your family don’t support what you want to do, I bet when you make it. They be the main ones with the hands out…. It seem I get better support from outside my houself hold at times, I just tend to shake it off. Sometimes I share my work on fb, but mostly it just on twitter. My parents don’t mind the fact I write, they probably would prefer it. But I’ll do it, on the side, but have another love as well. I love the way the mind work. Im glad you mention the professor, we may have to talk about that very soon. I replied to your dm on twitter. Many Blessings 🙂
