Life update


Here’s my first life update, a ton of things happened this past week. I’ve been working hard on my last school exam so my stress levels has been very high and stress is not good for me. Tomorrow I have an oral exam in front of a jury for my final project and I’m kinda shitting myself tbh. And with that mentality I’ve been admitted to the emergency room yesterday. I had pain all over my body when I was about to go to sleep and I couldn’t take it anymore, I had to ask my father to bring me to the hospital, due to the covid-19, I had to go through this alone. Now I may be 21 year old, but I’ve never had to go to the emergency room alone and I was so scared, I knew what they were going to do to me but that was how I was feeling. Anyways got into the hospital and stayed there for the night, as my pain was so bad, they immediately gave me morphine (though I hate it so much) and my pain went away immediately. To be honest I wanted to leave at that instant, I hate being in hospitals and I just wanted to escape. But the doctors said no and I had to wait the next day, which was a good call because I was honestly feeling woozy and my head was spinning.

The next day, they stopped pumping me morphine because my pain was going away but I still had the effects of the morphine. I was feeling dizzy and so tired. They let me out but I had a condition. I couldn’t go back to school for my jury presentation, I understood where they were coming from but I was scared I was going to fail my school year, this disease isn’t known worldwide and sometimes teachers think I’m making excuses when I’m literally just a sick person.

My presentation is today, I’m going to try to negotiate with my school to see if I can present it by videoconference or if there’s no hope.

I’ll update you guys!

I’m back!

Hi everyone!

After over a year of not writing anything I am officially back. I have missed it dearly and I do believe that talking about this topic is important. It may not impact everybody but if I could even impact one person, I would feel like I actually did something meaningful.

Why I left

To be honest, I was discouraged by the fact that nobody was reading my blog, maybe it’s a bit immature and not realistic that people would be reading after a month, but it got to me. I was having so much high expectations that when I didn’t meet them, I was so disappointed in myself and just got into my head.

In conclusion, I’m back and more determined than ever! I will see you all in my next post!

Welcome to my Blog!

Hello and welcome all to my not-so secret diary. So I’m Jo, a 20 year old student who loves to write and shop obviously. I want to use this blog to share my experience about having sickle cell disease, what’s it’s about, is there a cure and just everyday life in general. While yes I am going to talk about this disease I am also going to post about happy stuff, this is not a depressing blog, don’t worry guys. This is my diary and I’m letting everything in the open, so there might be some sad topics but also really funny ones. I really want people to acknowledge this and learn about it, but also I want others who have this disease to feel welcomed and even rant to me. So this is it for now, I will be posting tomorrow. Happy Sunday guys!
