Should a Sickle Cell Trait Person Marry Someone with Sickle Cell?

There is a hot topic over at the UKGreat Sickle Cell forum on FB. A

gentleman posted this question: My genotype is SS and my fiance is

AS. I love this girl very much because of her character. I intend to

marry her. Should I go on? I need your candid advice.




I have very strong views about this as a sickle cell warrior. I have

seen too many people with sickle cell get relegated to a lonely corner,

dumped, and heartbroken just because of their genetic… Continue

Pain in Tears

Scars that bind

Tears that fasten me to u

Our pain unites us

So be true to this emotion

live without shame your wounds

Carry your head high as the tears flow.

Let the tears fall and express your pain

without reservation, without regret

because the more we share our pain

the closer we become.

Pain shared is real, true, pure

I can’t fake pain, so why do I try to hide the most true part of who I am?

Why are we so ashamed of that which… Continue

Sickle Cell Pain Research

This is a qualitative study done in Virginia which states that sickle cell patients are in pain most of the time. It's a PDF file...you must have Adobe… Continue
