Sickle Cell and Its Peculiarities (I)
Whenever I shared other people’s distinctive journeys with sickle cell, I am astonished at how our stories are so different. I mean in terms of complications. One thing I have noticed with most people who suffer from one disease or another, in the African continent, is that faith plays a major role in their ability to make sense of their sickness.
Faith becomes an anchor when one has asked all manner of inexhaustible questions about why one has such a disease. However, issues about pain, management and looking after oneself are the same for anyone living with sickle cell.
