Hmmm...I'm lying on ma bed right now thinking of the pain of the last 7days.started on saturday lastweek,saturday is usually my 'lazing around' day. I had breakfast, my uncle came to visit us (me n my siblings),we were all gisting and then I got that feeling in my back...crisis knocking! And just like that,d pain came for real.I am 27years old and I have had quite a number of episodes but this was something else!
The pain is painfully indescribable,my doctors n nurses were moved to tears,painkillers were given evry hour,rules were broken just to give me relief,I was injected with d strongest of painkillers,overdosed but nothing changed.My loved ones were crying with me and helpless around me.The pain went on for about 3days before it started reducing. For those 3days I couldn't eat a thing.I am a bubbly person by nature, bur this just broke me.twas high infection, pcv was dropping speedily and I just had to wait for time to pass as I was being treated!
Sickle cell anaemia is no respecter of person,plans or event.This disease is just unfair cos all d affected did was come to d world! I love my family for the support they give me,but times like this I'm just plain tired! Tired of interrupted plans,tired of some misconceptions of the disease,tired of juggling being ss with a career I really want to make a name in,just plain tired!
It's just difficult and then there's that nagging fear of 'who will want to marry me'! Wow!I'd just take it a day at a time for now!
