Smiling makes a huge difference

I wrote a post before about The Power of a Smile, but now I want to add some new 2017 insight onto it. These days it's hard to be social with everybody in their own bubble.

My Top Coping Mechanisms When Suffering From Sickle Cell Crisis

Fellow Sickle Cell sufferers know that there's nothing worse than suffering pain so bad that you can barely move. It gets to the point where it even effects our breathing, and once it gets to that point there's nothing else for us to do but get dosed up on painkillers and try to get comfortable in bed (whether it be at home or the hospital).
