Awele's Diary - Must Read Must Watch!

So much pain.....so much laughter!

RIP AWELE


''Dearest Stella, I am reaching out to you with so much pain and sadness in my heart... Can you help me make an awareness on your blog? I really need people to watch for themselves... Your blog has really helped so many in the past and its still a voice for the voiceless.. 

My friend, Ijeawele Ivie died 3 days ago, on Sunday... She died as a result of sickle cell anaemia at the age of 25 years... It all started when she was 10 years old, you can imagine all the pains she went through all her life... She didn't allow the sickness hold her back from her dreams and aspirations... She had so much hope in what she wanted in life... She knew a time like this would come but it didn't stop her from achieving her goals... 



She got her masters in oil and Gas at the age of 24.

 I know you must be wondering why I need your help?! 

I need you to help make an awareness because there are so many people who disregard their genotypes before getting married or sexually involved without considering the future of their unborn kids... 

I am so hurt, even though I know she is in a better place and free from all her pains, monthly blood transfusions, needles, injections and pills but people need to be aware that putting a child's life at risk is not worth it... 

The government needs to create more awareness because so many young Nigerians die everyday due to lack of care or lack of funds... She lived her life very well with love from family and good friends... Please let's not let her dream die... Even though she lost this fight, but the truth is, she fought a good fight...


 There are millions of people suffering same fate and even worse...  Please Stella, encourage Sdkers to watch and share... We can't stop the people who already have it but we can stop future mistakes...





Love goes round in a circle..It gives life and takes it if we do not make the right choices at the point when life is birthed.
We have treated the Genotype issue lots times and we will not stop until you make the right decisions...Forget love and walk out of that relationship if your pairing will birth a sickler!

Thank you for documenting your pain with Laughter so that others can learn....RIP Awele .

    6. Luck has nothing to do with it.....science is there to warn us......no one should tempt fate .....how many kids do they have?...what will happen when that last one they r hoping to use to complete their family turns out to be d one......no cussing,,,just saying......RIP awele.....am sure u'll forever remain in d hearts of those who love u

    7. when the crisis starts, the love will die like omo water poured on burning firewood because the stress parents of sickle cell kids go through is not here o. It takes the grace of God for them to remain strong and not blame each other. If you are AS please don't marry AS. ( Except God personally appears to you and says that is your destiny) . Forget love.

    Don't put God to test with hopes of miracles.
    Don't bring more Awele 's to this earth to suffer.
    Do as many tests as you can.
    Don't take his/her word for it. "All my family members are AA". MBA!!!!!

  8. Oh dear!
    Oh dear!
    This actually brought so much tears to my eyes.
    She looked hopeful.
    The funny faces she made, the happy go nature she had, the intelligence she possesed,

    And then...
    The injections,
    The blood transfusions.

    Yet she kept the smile, the hope,
    But she eventually passed.
    My God!

    Please lovers do not go ahead once you find out your genotype ain't compatible.
    Save someone the pain

    Lara peperempe, I love you for being strong to walk away from true love just to save an unborn from so much pain sHould he/she come forth.
    God bless you for your decision. HE will crown you with a perfect man.

    This vid is so touching.

    4. Nuvi did you not do biology? If she births a child with someone who is aa, there is still a chance the child will be ss. That is why I said 'possible' as there is no guarantee. I have known some ss carriers and only 1 survived past 24. Rest are dead, and they went through pain for years before they died. Is love truly worth it?

    5. If she married AA, going with biology, she'll only have AS kids. I'm sure you sneaked out of biology classes to kiss..

  20. Awww... I really wanted to watch Her Diary affter she trended on twitter some days back, RIP Awele.
    I have a Friend with SS genotype she will be 28 soon, still pushing it, her Crises then in Uni were always heart wrenching the pain she and those around her had to go through... at least her parents had an excuse, Ignorance! 28 yrs back the awareness wasn't as widespread as it is now, yet! I saw comments like "SS o AA o who go die go die" on twitter, some said "Our ancestors didn't know this yet they were getting married...." just imagine tweets from supposedly educated individuals, and what of those that used the love card? no matter how in love you are, watching your child suffer will make you questions that foolish decision you and your spouse took and that child would hate you.
    Let's not be ignorant! We can eradicate SS forever, no your genotype, it should be one of the questions you ask on your 1st date, it won't make you come off as being desperate, if anything it would project you as careful.
    RIP Awele.

  31. #Teary eyes# Rest in peace Awele, may the good Lord comfort your loved ones you left behind.

    No parents pray to bury their child. Hence, people should please put sentiment and religion aside and face reality. I once spoke about this in my old blog, but some comments made me feel I was taking Tylenol for other people headache!!!

    I am AS, that was one of the reason I married late , but it was worth the waiting.

    Our parents of old were not aware, but now have technology at the tip of our fingers. Please let it be the first question to ask when out on a date. It is to avoid getting too involved in the relationship and finding it difficult and reluctant to let go.

    Some said they will be prepared to have an expensive baby or have selective elimination. But in the same voice people still condemn abortion. Double standard in my opinion. Until you experience a crisis, you won't understand. The emotional and physical strain nko?

    I am happy some churches make it mandatory before marriage. Don't take anybody's reply at face value, go to an authetic lab together and get tested.

    Continue to rest in peace beautiful Awele. SIGH!

  40. Even in d midst of her pains, she ws still a lively soul.. only God knws wht her young brother must be passing thru. I had one senior in my secondary sch. Although she's still alive & in her mid 30s. Not married yet. We happen to attend same church. Everytime I see her in chrch I just hav this 'pityful' look towards her. She looks so fragile & pale but beauriful. I alws imagine the pain she must be passing thru. I've lost about 3 suitors cos of this genotype issue.. When I meet a guy who seems like he wants to get serious wit me, the 1st question I ask is his genotype. Thr ws one who pleaded that we cud be 'lucky' & nt hav a SS child. I told him guy, I bind you, pls get right behind me! The emotional & psychological trauma is outta dis world. I cnt risk it! RIP once again Awele!

  55. I went against my better judgement and married a man with same genotype as mine As . This so called I'm in love is highly overrated and deceptive. I was offered cvs at five months ,it was too late to abort ,went on to have my beautiful daughter ,very beautiful with long straight hair . I fell in love for the first time in my life when I met her . She was diagnosed at five months with ss ,her first blood test result went missing. My world shattered !! It came to an end that day ,I couldn't have a good nights sleep for yrs ,I became drawn ,miserable,almost mad . Her so called father that demon distanced himself from her ,he often referred to her as ur daughter . Was Neva involved in her care .so much for love . I became a prayer warrior.,I prayed and declared what I wanted over her life everyday . Her first and only crisis hit her the day she took her first step ,can Neva forget that day the pain was out of this world . I have to stop now ,it's a beautiful day outside don't want to spoil it .

  59. I'm a sickle cell patient, had it diagonised right from birth and just lik awele my parents didn't know till the deed was done because the awareness was not this much back in their days. Just lik this young lady i'm 25, done with uni, done with NYSC and jst about completing my masters in uk. I thought i was strong, I thought my life was going as planned and i feellt blessed up until now. Not because i don't have crisis or havnt spend a good part of my life ij and out of operation rooms. But looking at this girl, filled with so much life just like me, a clown just like me and an achiever just like me, yet she died. This has demoralized me. I ask myself now whats d guarantee that just lik all her efforts hv gone to the grave with her that mine won't be cut short aswell. I believe so much in God but then we never know his plans. I don't know but lik she said I don't wish SS on even my worst enemy. I hv a yunger brother that looks after me wen i'm ill just like her. I hold on si much nd try to be strong just so my family won't hurt too. Looking at this video i saw myself nd the fact that she gave up makes me doubt my strength to pull through.

Do not let d devil plant that thought in u, cos u and Awele aren't the same, yes u share same SS, but u are alive today, that is enough hope. Pls be strong my friend, u ain't going no where. Kisses.

    @anon 13 May 2015 at 13:03 there's nothing like luck there. it's called probability. do some research. how do you know the woman didn't check the status when she was pregnant found out the foetus was SS and terminated it? that's what people do nowadays.

  62. Am in pain after Watching this...Rip Awele

    ReplyDelete
  63. RIP Awele. We thank God for information and technology that will allow Awele leave a legacy behind in advice to those who have ears. In our parents time they did not know better hence all the stories of Ogbanje children. Some were lucky, 1 out of 5 or 6 being a sickler and later dying leaving the remaining 4 or 5. Some where very unlucky, with all 4 or 5 being sicklers and all dying off. I've lost friends who were sicklers, I have fiends who lost siblings and I have friends who have children with this disease and I know it is not funny at all. Do you know that the trauma of having a sickle cell baby can make a couple split up? The pain and the stress is just too much. It even stops others from having other children in fear. I have a friend who lost a brother to the disease, has a beautiful sister in her 40s, unmarried, living with the disease and unfortunately, was too in love and did not get tested before getting married and today has a child leaving with the disease. She is heart broken and lives with the pain, the stress and the fear of what might become of her child, but God has been faithful. In most cases, it is the mother who suffers because they are the ones running around from one hospital to the other, crying with the child because of the pains while the daddy is supposedly out looking for money to pay the bills. Please let Awele not have died in vain. Even if the parents are so in love and believe they can bear the psychological and emotional pains of having a sickler baby, please think of the life of pain (physical, emotional & psychological) you will be subjecting that innocent child to. I am AS and my mother taught me from my secondary school days that when you meet a guy you are interested in, you must have the "what is your genotype?" conversation before things get far. I did and I am happily married with healthy children to the glory of God alone!!! Do not tempt fate as God surely helps those who help themselves. A word is enough for the wise.

  67. Im in my mid 40s now. I lost two promising suitors cos of this genotype stuff. It was crazy. i went bunkers. One suitor was a lawyer, one a banker. At this time when to get suitors hard. I backed out of the relationships. and moved on. I promised myself that I will never bring a child into this world to suffer neither will I terminate a pregnancy cos of genotype.
    When my husband came along, the first thing he asked was 'what is your genotype' I nearly had a heart attack - Not again. He told me when he was at school at Nsukka (UNN) that he had done his genotype and it came out AS. I told him to recheck. My heart was in my mouth. The next day, he went and did the test and it came out AA, he also reconfirmed and it was still AA. So the first test he did at school was wrong.
    To cut long story short: I HAVE 4 LOVELY HEALTHY CHILDREN; The Lawyer has 3 healthy kids and the Banker has 5 healthy kids. There are so many problems in the world to use your hand and generate more. Please always make informed decisions, that is why we are educated. It is difficult to let go a loved one, but for others (kids yet unborn) its the most selfless thing to do. THINK. God will provide your match for you. Look up to him.

  68. I saw this video yesterday and I couldn't sleep. My friend lost her sister to SCD. I am AS and unfortunately always meet AS guys still going to wait till I meet someone whose genotype is better suited for me. My ex even told me he doesn't mind, he is not keen on having kids so we won't bother having any. Imagine the demon, I told him I mind he should please move forward and look for someone else. Love is not stupid

  69. My colleague in the office insisted he must marry his girlfriend (now wife) even when all the results said otherwise. They are both AS and the rhesus factor. He said he is throwing it t as a challenge to God. He married the girl despite all warnings from his family, my boss, fellow colleagues. Now they are hearing and smelling nwii. The wife has miscarried many times that can be counted. They said its the rhesus factor. The love way bin de shack them is already dwindling... Life is a choice. Choose wisely. Awele sleep beautifully

  76. RIP awele , iv never met a sickler but iv read enough to get an understanding of the pain involved. It's never worth it, please don't take chances . AS and AS should not get married, this is like the last topic in senior and junior secondary biology.

  77. Watching this video brought tears to my eyes, it is so true that not only the Sickle Cell patients suffer, their families go through so much emotional pains and financial drains. To all intending couples, kindly find out your genotypes before getting pregnant and let us all build beautiful and healthy families.

    Continue to rest in peace Awele, I love your smile by the way and you've got one of the cutest brothers ever. May Almighty God continue to console your family and friends.

    God bless you Stella Sugar for the good work you are doing, your reward is in heaven.

  85. FROM MY INBOX
    Re: Sickle Cell Anemia, not all sad endings...
    Hello Stella,
    I just read the post on Awele... May her beautiful soul rest in peace. Amen
    That said, I would like to share my testimony... I read a BV's comment that broke my heart and inspired me to share... She said she kind of feels hopeless (not her exact words) cos Awele died and same fate may await her..
    To that poster, I want to say there is hope. I am almost 32years old, married with a child and I dare to hope... You should too... For every person who dies from Sickle Cell, there are a number of people who are living well... I know a number of people, one being Christopher Kolade, former high commissioner to the UK (I think, a major achiever, Google him...) he is close to his 90s now, Tosyn Bucknor, a family friend who hasn't even had a crisis in 9years plus... among others.
    Sickle Cell Anemia isn't a terminal illness, but can be terminal. There is a difference. If managed well, we can live normal lives.
    While I understand the need for premarital genotype testing awareness, we need to be careful to draw the line between creating awareness and encouraging stigmatization/hopelessness among sufferers ..
    Sickle Cell is real, the pain is craazy... the best way I describe it to my mum is a lot of needles being drilled into parts of your body at a time, using a hammer... It is not pain you wish on your foe... However, it builds resilience and strength and some people like myself have to live with it.
    Having Sickle Cell doesn't equate a death sentence.. with God, water and folic acid in your life, lol, you can and you will live..
    My baby sister who is also SS once said to me, 'if you die from this illness I know there is no hope for me.'... I took that to God and we (God and I) have both agreed that' I will not die but live to declare the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living'.. I put this in his face always... and I have been a sign of God's goodness... Got married to a man who looked beyond my genotype, got pregnant immediately, had no morning sickness or nausea (told God I couldn't handle it)... It was rough towards the end but I have a beautiful girl to show for it. The only time you can tell I'm SS is when I have a crises.. all to the glory of God. I have a budding career, and doing well in general... haven't had one admission this year... Sometimes I even forget I'm SS.. All thanks to God.

  86. CONTINUATION.....


    Your mind is powerful, you cannot accept defeat my dear...Dear BV, Pls unsay what you said about 'being hopeless'... be positive please.. you are in your 20s you have a whole life ahead of you. Please don't turn another's reality to yours... That she died does NOT in any way mean you will...
    It gets hard especially when people treat you with pity and fragility... It's no easy thing to deal with but you gotta approach it as one of life's challenges and face it head on. There are stories like Awele's that break your heart and there are others that give you hope...
    To all Sickle Cell warriors out there, God sees us and feels our pain, keep keeping on.. May we all be testimonies to others...
    To lovers, I would say the only thing worse than the pain of Sickle Cell is a loved one going through the same pain... Because you know that pain, it's torture... Talk less of your child... I would have been Ludacris to put my child through the same pain.. It is very easy as an AS person to say 'we can weather the storm, but my darlings pls don't... I can't even capture the guilt my mum feels everytime I'm in pain, you do NOT need that.
    Beyond the physical pain the child has to go through, there is stigmatization which could break your child and affect their confidence (though God gives us special sharp mouth anointing, lol)...
    Finally, we all owe it to the society to eradicate this disease, I have taken the step by marrying an AA person, and hopefully my AS kids will marry AA spouses and help reduce Sickle Cell in Nigeria. If we all do same, in a few generations, Sickle Cell will be wiped out.

    1. In addition to the anonymous up there, please change ur confession, u are not hopeless, what u speak would work for you. Awele's confessions in the video were not always positive, I guess due to the pain but there's immense power in our confessions, even careless talk. Never confess negatively again

  92. There are many SS patients that have never slept in the hospital for once.i wish there could be a forum where people who are SS sufferers,caregivers or parents can hook up.i found out on nairaland email years ago some herbal remedies developed by some professors and manufacture in sapele, that stuff works. It is a cure.called celloid s.some people have been on it for so many years and they are fine. Moringa tea is also something everyone with sickle cell should take everyday. You have to take it consistently for 3 months at first to start noticing the change. So many other remedies like avoiding malaria .I had a colleagues who never called in sick for one single day in 3 years that I worked there.he was SS. Key is herbal medicine.
