We still Hope
I am 30 years old now and it seems like I'm in the hospital every other month. In my teens and twenties I was great, virtually now problems and no hospital visits! Now, I'm a mother of 2 and sickle cell is getting in the way of my family time :( Anyone else notice that with age, health gets worse?
my type is SC and in my early 20s the hematologist I was seeing at the time told me that as I got older I would get sick less, but with more intensity.
I'm 26 and things have gotten progressively worse for me since I was about 23. I can only hope that it's something that can get better because I can't even imagine things getting any worse in the next 4yrs or so. I wouldn't be able to live like that. I don't have any children but I can imagine that would take a toll on the progression of the disease.
