My First Crises


Story of my first crises. A lovely family day at the beach, went awry with sickle cell…and so it began. Share your sickle cell first crises story in the comments section.


  1. Plenty of water as mentioned, but also dont forget to breathe.

    I found that often my lack of deep breathing added to the problem. Im not on FB but feel free to reach me at Im sure you’ll find plenty of support from the FB group.

  2. Drink lots of water. I have SCD but fortunately for me, i have pain like twice a year and i don”t need to visit the hospital, i just pop a pill and the pain goes in a few minutes. I haven’t been to the hospital in like 5yrs. However, i suffer from malaria a lot as i live in Africa and i do have jaundice all the time. These are my major SCD challanges.
