Living with Sickle Cell Anemia or any chronic illness gives you perspective that you might not otherwise have. When you are born with it, you grow up learning to manage it. You may think “Why me”, but know that it is never fair. As you get older though you learn how to live with it and you move on. People with diseases need to concentrate on their health more, but ask yourself, why not incorporate better healthier habits now. Manage your life and add things back in, like walks, vitamins, even drinking more water.
