Seems like my health is getting worse with age, anyone else?

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.

Yes, it get's harder as complications increase. As we age, we MUST be pro-active to stay well. Everything we do, we gotta do more. Healthy diet, exercise, rest, vitamins, no stress, and learn healthy lifestyle information. Live well!!!!!!

I found it got better with age. I'm 43 and a mother of one. Hang in there, it will get better.
