I'm Neke. I'm new to this site and I am glad that I found it. Since childhood I have always felt alone with this disease being as though my cousin and I are the only ones in the family that have it (and I didn't find out he had it until I was 18). Nevertheless, I want to start connecting with people that have this disease. I know that I am not in it alone. I would also like to know others experiences, so I am glad I found this!

Again WELCOME and I will be sending a friend request after this.

Thank you for your response! I have Beta Thal. I usually don't have many attacks but I was just in the hospital for 10 days.. this was one of the worse ones i've had in a while. Pain in both legs and right arm.. while in the hospital i got fluid in my lungs (i think from the IV), I had E.coli in in my urine, and an up and down fever, and i had 2 packs of blood transfusion. Thank God I am out now. I was wondering if anyone else has been through something similiar to this?

Hey Neke, Welcome! We all have lots of experiences. I have started to try and document some of my experiences by vlogging (video logs). Here is the link to my youtube, check it out when you can. https://www.youtube.com/user/LifewithoutSCA
