Unheard Cries of Despair


It would be really unfair for me to compare ones pain with mine but honestly, I don’t think there’s any pain that surpasses that of a Sickle Cell Crisis. I remember when I was a kid, I used to have frequent episodes of pain. I did not know much about sickle cell then but I knew I was different. I was treated differently. I did not understand why I wasn’t allowed to run around like every other kid. Why I wasn’t allowed to play as much. I missed school a lot too. I wasn’t allowed to do strenuous activities like my siblings. I just knew I had sickle cell, but why was I being treated differently! It was just a disease like any other right? Wrong!
