Sickle cell. I’m sick of this cell. This prison like hell. Sick of the sales they sell…of false cures in pill bottles. Start the regimen and more ills follow. Makes you feel hollow. How low is rock bottom when its past the stones? This pain pass through bones. Faith comes through prayers and moans. But God called my phone, told me through Him even my weak be strong. – Jasmine Bailey (R.I.P.)

Difference between fatigue and tiredness
Everyone feels *tired*, at the end of the day, as a result of 12-14 waking hours spent in physical and mental work plus emotional interactions. This kind of tiredness is relieved by rest or a good night’s sleep. Fatigue on the other hand is a type of chronic tiredness that is not so easily addressed.
Fatigue is a feeling of low physical and/or mental energy and motivation, at times accompanied by sleepiness, such that the patient finds it difficult to perform daily activities.
Fatigue, as compared to routine tiredness, lasts for a longer duration and does not reduce by physical and mental rest alone.
Common symptoms of fatigue are weakness, low energy, constant tiredness, absence of motivation, struggle to concentrate and inability to start or complete any task.

Sickle Beta Zero Thalassemia (Sickle BA-ta zero thal-a-SEE-me-a) is similar to sickle cell anemia. Your child’s red blood cells contain abnormal hemoglobin, called “hemoglobin S” or “sickle hemoglobin”. In addition, the red blood cells have a defect called thalassemia, which results in cells that are small in size and more pale than usual. Instead of appearing round or donut shaped, your child’s red blood cells are somewhat small, pale, and misshapen. Some may appear sickled or banana shaped.
Because sickle beta zero thalassemia is inherited, it is a lifelong disorder. There is no treatment or cure. Your child will always have a mild anemia or slightly low blood count. This may result in occasional tiredness or weakness.
There are several types of sickle cell disease. The most common are: Sickle Cell Anemia (SS), Sickle-Hemoglobin C Disease (SC), Sickle Beta-Plus Thalassemia and Sickle Beta-Zero Thalassemia.
