Stress is one of my biggest triggers of a sickle cell crisis so I need to avoid it whenever I can.
This is easier said than done but it is essential.
One thing that helps me is talking about how I feel. Whenever I start to feel my stress levels building, I speak to my loved ones, and more often than not, they are able to help me think of practical solutions to help manage/reduce my stress.
Is stress a trigger for you? What do you do when you feel stressed?
