Hey Readers! So glad to finally be writing again! I have been so sick, and family members have been having a lot of health problems too, so my blog had to be pushed to the back burner. Thankfully, for the past 3 months I’ve been out of the hospital, and feeling a lot better. 2016 and most of 2017, were really difficult years for me, health wise; so to finally be feeling better, and getting back into doing things that I love (like writing), is a huge blessing to me. I know to many people, being out of the hospital for 3 months sounds like nothing, but when you’re literally in and out of the hospital almost every two weeks, it’s a HUGE deal. The sad thing too is, when I was out of the hospital, I still wasn’t able to do anything because I would be too weak and recovering from being hospitalized; by the time I recovered, I would end up being sick again. So, it was just a vicious cycle for awhile. Now that my health is finally getting a lot better, I’m so excited to start working on things I’ve been wanting to do for years, now. That’s the reason for this blog today: to tell you guys about a book that I finally have a chance to work on! Of course, I can’t say exactly what the book will be about, just know that it does revolve around Sickle Cell Disease. I was going to do a book about my life living with SCD (which I still plan on doing) but I think the book that I’m starting to work on now is more important, and will be helpful to people living with SCD, and family members that may help care for them. This book is going to take a lot of time and effort, but I’m so ready to dive headfirst into this project. This book is going to require me to interview a lot of my fellow Sickle Cell Warriors, and some Doctors as well, so now that my health is starting to cooperate with me, I can get started on the interviewing process. I’ve already started drafting up information for the book, and the questions to ask, so everything’s off to a great start. I want this book to be really informative and helpful, because there is such limited books out there on Sickle Cell Disease; trust me, I’ve looked. Of course, this book is going to take some time to write, because of all that has to be done, but I wanted to at least let you guys know about it, especially my Warriors. As soon as I have all of my questions lined up, I will start lining up Sicklers to interview. If you want to be interviewed, just leave a comment on here for me, or just message me on Facebook: Tyeshia Rodgers. While working on my book, I’ll also be writing more blogs; I just feel so energized and good, after literally years of being so sick, ALL THE TIME, I have so much stuff I want to get done. I know I need to pace myself though, and continue doing what I have to do, in order to stay out of the hospital. I’m doing a good job so far, and hopefully will continue to do so. Okay Readers, that’s all for now, but expect another blog pretty soon!
