Hi again, Anon!

Within the WebMD's Sickle Cell Directory, I found this feature article that I didn't want you to miss.


I hope this will be helpful to you.

Dear Anon,

Thanks for reaching out to EmpowHER.

As you know, Sickle cell disease is an inherited red blood cell disorder. People with sickle cell disease can have abnormally shaped red blood cells.

The best way to live as normal a life as possible is to stay on point with whatever care, guidance, and/or treatment you are receiving from your doctor. Read as much about it as you can on your own and see how others are managing. Many people benefit from support groups, sharing information that has helped them in living with the disease.

Below is a link to WebMD's Sickle Cell Directory. There is some good information there that may help. I hope it will and I wish you all the best in the new year. :)
