Hi Friends



It is realy nice to see all of you guys sharing & learning, as well as helping each other
Something about myself:

My name ia Puneet, generaly people call me Prince here (Thats my nick name). I was 2 yrs old when I was dignosed with Thal Major. I have completed my Masters in Economics & Managment three years ago, and now I am managing my Travel Agencie.

As I mentioned that I am from India. It is realy good to see many Associations and help groups are providing assistance now to help Thal Patients, but still a lots need to be done.

Friends I will be around now, & will try to participate in discussions all the time.

Smile

Prince

hello everyone,
I'm a 51yrs old who was diagnose with thalassemia minor(traits)and sickles cell,
that happened two yrs ago, when, I was getting lots of problems with my health,
I had severe depression. high blood pressure, high cholestrol and lots of body aches and pain.
I already suffered a minor heart attack lucky i went to hospital on time and was given oxigen and aspirin .I cann't cope with  stressfull situations, heat or severe cold weather.
Still iI feel that i'm not getting the proper treatment I need ,as there has not been any research and no one is dealing with thalassemia,  here in perth west australia.My doctor told me  that they cann't change my biological make up.
So here I am suffering in silence and waiting for my death ,I 'm gratefull that I could  be part of this website thank you for having me.

Hi Kathy,

Welcome to our group.

The combination of thal and sickle cell genes can cause a very serious condition. I think you may benefit by finding another doctor, more familiar with blood disorders. We do have several members here from Australia and at least one very knowledgable about sickle cell thal. They may be able to point you in the right direction towards finding proper care.

Please feel free to share your story and ask any questions that you may have.
Andy

All we are saying is give thals a chance.

hi Andy.
I'm so glad that at least one person recognize that my complaints are not in my head,its real.
Its very fustrating, visiting  the doctor .I've changed doctor twice already and they  don't seems to care much .I want to consult with another doctor   but I dont know where to start.
three weeks ago. on a Monday at 02:00am ,I was admitted in a teaching hospital with the sign and symtomps of heart attack ,still the doctor there didnot bother much to find out what was happening with me.
I got so disappointed with the care that I discharge myself from the hospital and still no body gave a damn.
A
nurse told me that i will need to take aspirin for the rest of my life, it was then that I went to my gp and requested that she prescribed it to, to my surprise it is helping the pain.
