When Tyson was first diagnosed with sickle cell disease, I had no idea what that…
I’ve been exhausted! I’ve been exhausted physically, emotionally, spiritually, everythingly. Yes I definitely just made a word up but stick with me on this. Having two children with a chronic disease is so hard. I’m constantly giving vitamins, monitoring water intake, reading labels, trying to make vegan food fun and delicious (oh btw we are vegan now, more to come about that later), homeschool them and so much more all while trying to make sure they live “regular” lives. Don’t get me wrong I love being a mom and I love being a stay at home mom even more so I’m not complaining. I know my babies are blessed and we have been able to avoid most of what Sickle Cell can really do to the body. I am so grateful for our experiences and the lack of experiences we’ve had or didn’t have. But I am tired!
I want We Eat 4 Life to be helpful and inspiring but I don’t think I can do that without sharing with all of you how hard this journey has been for me. There are so many things I struggle with, mostly unanswered prayers and questions but the weight of it all is extremely exhausting. I am slowly making changes in my routine to help me manage it all much better because We Eat 4 Life is so much bigger than me or even my children. I want to help everyone with Sickle Cell live a life with minimal pain/complications.
So with all that being said I’d love some feedback on things you guys would like to see more of. Maybe see some new things on here I haven’t done before. Please send me your ideas and thoughts so I can rebuild WeEat4Life to last a lifetime. Looking forward to hearing from you all. Thanks for all the love and support.
