Hi My name is Tootie and I'm 30yrs old and I was born with Sickle Cell Anemia, it's a Blood Dissorder.
Not Contagious,it just causes ALOT of pain. I have 2 bio kids and 1 Stepdaughter. I've been w/my husband for 11yrs and married 7yrs.
IThe winter is the worst time of year for me. I can't realy go outside and when i do I usualy get sick.
Medicaly speaking my body has fallen apart. I have no splean, appendix or gallbladder. had those removed at 12. I've had my lungs drained and have whats called Avacularnercrosis of the bone, wich means my bones are deteriorating. I have a right full hip replacement (got at 19) and i need the other replaced and both shoulders.
My leggs allways hurt. EVERYDAY and it makes it hard for me to do alot of things with my kids. I have a 12,4 and 1yr old. I take 90mgs of morphine twice daily for nonstop pain i'm admited in the hospital every few months. But I'M OK :) Thats Me...Tootie I hope everyone gets through their pains in life.
