Living With Sickle Cell Anemia

Hey and Welcome to my world, for some Welcome Back. What a day I had. Finally got to meet my primary doctor and so far I must admit I like her. I’m so not a morning person and I had to be a walk in person. OMG! So had to be there at 8 this morning. Sighs. You guessed it still had wait be seen. Sighs. I hate the doctor office for that reason. Waiting! Got to the back prob before 10. Gave them all my information and told them why I was there. As some of you may know I have a nasty little cold and she orders x-ray that plan get tomorrow after my doc appointment. Since I have sickle cell we trying make sure it doesn’t turn into acute chest or pneumonia. Who knew meds for something else could give me a cough that evolves into a nasty one. In the back of my head, I’m saying duh. Lol. Anywho we made the visit sweet was the student doctor working with her. I’m not fond of students working under nurses or doctors. But she actually surprises me with the questions about how she can be a better doctor when dealing with sickle cell patient. So gave her a few of things I been through and how I have been treated. She sat and listen to me talk. I pray she never change from listening to her patients. I even gave her my blog link. I explain to her so many people still don’t know what sickle cell is. Before actually open up to her I as if she knew what it was she just knew the basic of what’s in the book. You would think after all these years they would update the information. Still not my best but hoping the meds help. Will keep y’all updated as I go. Have Eye appointment tomorrow. Until next time God Bless

  1. Thank you for sharing little sister. I share your frustration with doctor visits. My chronic illnesses are different than yours, but I certainly understand doctors, tests, etc etc.
    Prayed for you 🙂

  2. Lady you know I’ve been out the loop for a while but when I see something I am on it. You know I’ll be lifting you up in my prayers like “right now”. Always praying the best for you and your healing. I went to high school (cough it’s been some years lol) with a young lady who dealt with sickle cell so I knew through mutual friends the hardships she dealt with when she got sick. So I don’t take it lightly. I hope and pray that the student shadowing your doctor continue to practice listening and such as she will one day see her own patients. Too easily medical professionals can get caught up and you are just a number. With that said I pray that my oldest daughter does the same as she is following in my husband’s footsteps. She was just accepted into medical school so I believe the Lord has her there for a reason and going into a profession that she can not only take care of and treat patients but also pray for them and their healing on a level that comes from and through Christ Jesus.

    God bless you! I am praying to stay more in the loop on the blog and to check on you and your health.
