My name is Myron, I'm a Kenyan

My journey with sickle cell disease started at five months old. I had a severe pain crisis and I couldn't learn how to walk until two years later. I have been in and out of the hospital for as long as I can remember.

My high school was hell and was filled with stigma, pain, and heartbreaks due to being emotionally and physically unavailable. I've not joined college yet due to fears, but I have enrolled for virtual school. I hope it will work out for me
