Let’s Play Catchup

What’s good fam? Has it really been that long? I can’t believe we are midway through Sept and I haven’t posted a thing. Sorry to all the folks that emailed me, with no response—I haven’t been sick, I’ve just be drowning in a sea of too many responsibilities. Work: has

I’m Alive

Okay, so I didn’t plunge 14,000 feet to my death! It was soooooo fun that I’m ready to do it again. Norio was being so ‘cautious’ and he doesn’t believe in risking your life for no reason…he didn’t even go up! Personally it’s one of the most exhilarating things I’ve

Catch Up

Wow, it’s been 10 days since my last post. Part of the reason is that I’ve been out of town chilling with my family in Indiana. The flight’s were long but I had no problem. No crises and very minimal pain to speak of. Another thing happening is that I’ve

No Pain

Check this out—this is my first week ever since I hit puberty that I haven’t had to take any narcotics. That’s intense! I haven’t had any L3’s at all and barely any L2’s. In fact, the only thing I’ve taken this whole week since Monday last was 600mg of Motrin

Back Again

Well, the last week has been rough to say the least. I’m going to explore the triggers of my last crises as I usually do in my next post, but this one was really, really awful. The last time I was sick, I thought it was my worst time ever…but

I think I’m officially the only vented person that took a picture as well. What a dork!

The flight to Hawaii was really long, about 8 hours in total. I was worried that my sickle cell would flare up but it held up. The main thing is that I can’t go into the water as much as I would like to because my core body temperature drops

What’s up!

Okay, okay, it’s been a minute. I’ve been fine sickle cell wise though. Just sorting through some other issues that have me not having that much time online like I used to. Anyway, this is a shout out to one of my sickle cell warriors, Khiana! Stay strong girl and

Admitting I’m Not a Super Woman

I was at work last night, another late 12 hour nocturnal shift. Everything was going okay until around 4am when I got hit by major pains. It’s unethical to be popping pain pills when I have the lives of other people in my hands so I just gritted my teeth

Holiday Weekend

“Hey, lets go skiing this weekend,” my hubby said this morning. I stared at him. “Baby…what is my name? Do you know me?” I asked staring at him drolly. “Oh yeah,” he continued with a laugh. “Skiing probably isn’t good for you because of the cold and the high altitude…”

Back From Another Crises

First of all, I will update the ticker. Now it’s only been a 5 days since my last admission, bummer—what a way to start the year. But I’m not going to gripe about it, such is the lot in my life. Everyone has their burden to bear. Last year I

Crises #1 of 2008: Triggers

Okay, so I’m trying to think about everything that contributed to this last crises, so that I can do better with the ‘taking care of myself’ part and prevent another one from happening. Working Overtime: Overtime pay rocks, but the OT on my body was a bad call. I thought

I’m Alive…Yay!

Hey peoples, Do I really post that infrequent that noone knows I’ve been out? Dayum! New Year Resolution, post more often. I was sick in the hospital since the 5th, not a cool way to start the year but it has been my modus operandi as of the last few
