Over my years as an adult, I’ve often faced difficulties dating with Sickle Cell. Many of these complications come into play on a psychological level, but there have also been occasions where I take sick after sharing intimacy with a partner. In this diary, I will explain my experiences in hopes that readers and sufferers will understand.
When it comes to intimacy
I lost my virginity later than most. This is mainly because sex wasn’t something of high importance throughout my teens. Being in and out of hospital affected my early academic career; and it meant that I wasn’t in good standing with my peers on a social level. Looking back, I’m sure it was difficult for many people of my age to relate to me. I was likely seen as an outsider and unattractive to the opposite sex as a result.
