Anemia and Sickle Cell Trait

I have both. BOO and HISS. Okay, I have to eat healthy in order to live without medicines. The iron pill, multi-vitamin, and 2 metformins will be a total of 4 pills a day. This explains my life of being cold and tired all the time.

I am sorry to hear you have both! I know it can be frustrating. I understand wanting to avoid having to take a lot of drugs. I am the same way too. Hopefully, you can manage these two conditions without drugs.

Btw, your Sisterlocks look great!

i can control my anemia with exercise and weight lifting especially.red meats about once a month. the anemia really only kicks in during 'that time'of the month

Thanks for sharing info on Sickle Cell. I met a girl on our DC trip who's 12 and has it. She'll be one of my students this year and I look forward to speaking to her about it. I wanted to write a non-fiction book on Sickle Cell from a child/teen perspective. Blessings...
