|I have a rare, DEADLY disease?!||Category: (general)|

I have anemia. The rarest kind. Resent studies show its could KILL me!
I have aplastic anemia. This is one of the deadliest and most rare forms of anemia.
Only two to six people per million have this type of anemia. The condition results
from an unexplained failure of the bone marrow to produce all types of blood cells.
Instead, fat cells replace bone marrow.
Aplastic anemia is usually found in adolescents and young adults. Symptoms can
include bleeding in the mucous membranes. Chemicals such as benzene and certain
pesticides can also cause this type of anemia.
I have too much iron in my body, making too many white blood cells. I also have too
little protein, making my red blood cells weak, and my bone marrow will quit trying
to produce them. Because I have too many white blood cells, my red blood cells kinda
get beat up by them. To keep my marrow making red blood cells, I have to drink A LOT
of water, up to nine and a half GALLONS a day! Making me urinate A LOT! My teachers
still don't let me go pee.
Yesterday during a pacer test, I got to the water fountain, my friend Emily went to
get me a bottle so I could move around but still keep water intact. I got to the
fountain, she was gone by now, I collapsed UNDER the fountain. My parents weren't
even alerted of this. But when my friend/by law sister, who shall not be named uses
the excuse she has low blood sugar, then fakes some kindof attack, everyone in her
contacts are noted. I could have been put under E.R attention because I DID have an
attack. She faked one.
I almost died. No one cared. My attack continued after physical education class.
On into science. And no one even cared.
