Good morning beautiful humans, happy Wednesday! Thank you for spending part of your morning with me or evening depending on where you live in this great big world! Welcome to Life with Lane; my life through words, pictures, and food. Come on in……….
Hi there friends, its Sickle cell awareness month! Sickle cell, according to the mayo clinic, is one of a group of disorders known as sickle cell disease. It is an inherited red blood cell disorder in which there aren’t enough healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen throughout your body.
I myself am anemic and I’m tired all the time but mine isn’t severe. Some symptoms of sickle cell are, anemia, episodes of pain, swelling of hands and feet, frequent infections, delayed growth or puberty, and vision problems!
I’m not a doctor, lol! So, if you have those symptoms don’t assume you have sickle cell without first seeing one.
Sickle cell can be very serious so make sure you take care of yourself. If you know someone who does, be empathetic and don’t brush it off as not being a big deal. Educate yourself my friends!
Thanks for reading my blog! Like, comment, subscribe! Do you know someone with sickle cell disease? Have a wonderful blessed day and always be kind!
