About Me

Hi I’m Britney, I’m a 29 yr old wife and mother of two young kids, and I’m living with Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) also known as Sickle Cell Anemia. SCD is an “Inherited” disorder that affects the hemoglobin in the red blood cells that carry oxygen throughout the body, therefore causing severe ongoing chronic pain. I was diagnosed with the most common yet most severe form of SCD(SS) when I was a baby and have struggled throughout my life to just find a comfortable medium where me and this horrible illness can co-exist, and yet to be completely honest, I’m still struggling to cope. Every single day is a struggle and if it’s not with me fighting my illness and trying to stay out the hospital, then its with the doctors as I fight to get the medications and things I need just to be a little more comfortable. But there are a few things I have learned along the way and my hope and goal for this blog is to share my story and possibly help someone else along the way. Along with sharing my story I will also be discussing and giving my opinion on different topics such as love, family and relationships as well as sharing different resource that I feel may help. So without further ado, Welcome to Lottie’s Corner.
