Emotional Support Starts With You!


Sometimes you end up on a journey that you have no idea why you are traveling it. As a child, I suffered from Asthma and anything that upset me would freak me out and would cause me to have an Asthma attack. Today, Sickle cell has altered my family’s life to the point where freaking out was no longer a luxury I could afford. It changed the whole management of my emotions.

There is no exact science to what works for everyone but to become that solid rock that your sickle cell warrior needs, getting control of your emotions is a definite must. Your whole emotional support system depends on how you control your emotions.
