So I've been in and out of the hospital continuously since 2019.. Started with pregnancy complications, then coma, emergency Cs, lung infection, kidney infection and most recent AVN.. Now it's healed and I'm lucky to have a job now.. Wheeeeeew! What would I have done with all the hospital bills and dept?..

I just got paid and believe me this is the first time ever in my life that I received salary.. Yah.. That bad.. Sickle cell patients around the world still face work place discrimination even though we need money the most..

Well, I've cleared my debts today and I have a little change left after storing enough food and meds.. Now I'm on a staycation at a nice hotel...

I NEEDED THIS... I really needed a break....
