Magical Monday Motivation: Sickle Cell Warrior # 17

Living with Sickle Cell disease requires a lot of medication. For instance I normally take Pen V for infection, Folic Acid to build my blood, Palwudrine for malaria and Brufen for the pain. Sometimes when the pain is too much and I can’t handle it, I am taken to hospital for more medication. In this case, I am used to the blood transfusions and the drips and most importantly and hard to get used to, the very many injections. What has motivated me to keep going strong during pain is my parents who are always there and understanding that it will always go away.
