Sickle Cell Support Group by mictima(m): 7:03pm On Jun 08, 2018
Hi everyone...

There has been a burden in my heart of recent and I felt I should give it a try... There is no harm in trying, right?

I was thinking of creating an online support group. Well, actually, it is going to kick off with a whatsapp group whose admin will be me. Later in the future, I hope it evolves to something bigger.

I am a Sickle Cell "Warrior" and I am not ashamed, neither am I afraid! All I want is to reach out to other fellow "warriors" and or care-givers (siblings, parents, friends, relatives and so on). I have had the opportunity of meeting other "warriors" through this platform and through the physical sickle cell support group that I belong to here; but I want to explore the possibilities of Internet and social media to reach out to more people and make more friends and to encourage others, as I am being encouraged myself.

The main aim of the support group is to strengthen each other as we win over our health daily together. You might be wondering how this will work and how you can trust if the group members are for real; well, till you are convinced, you can assume anonymity and help others as you are being helped yourself.

I am open to suggestions, advice, criticisms, contributions and so on. But, one thing stands above all, we are for the best of each other.

Whatsapp number is : 07067810516
Message me, and I will add you up.
Coming up with the link later.

Thanks.
Looking forward to support you and be supported by you.

Stumbled on your diary yesterday and I didn't stop till I read through all of them, your journey had been awesome. May God continue to strengthen you and preserve you for your family. And may you be a source of strength to all HbSS like you. You are a warrior don't stop fighting and also be a source of strength to others.

Well, what can I say?
Thank you for the encouragement and a mighty Amen to the prayer!

In life, many people ask "why!". So many "whys" instead of "whats".
Why did this happen to me, why. Me, why us blah blah blah

To me, I believe, it should be "what"; "what do I do next?", "what is the plan?". And so on.

Thanks for the encouragement.
Afterall, it is a crime not to live to the fullest, so far we live once!
