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.

One such comic is Suicide Squad. I've gotten back into comics ever since I got my iPad Mini, all thanks to the DC, Marvel and ...
