sickle cell anemia and folic acid

I am usually forgetting to take my folic acid 5mg and I have run out of it for 4 weeks. I know it's bad it can ruin your organs I am only 27 years old but I know it's good for my red blood cell and I need it. any dangers to it if you've been missing for weeks? I will take it I am just waiting for the GP to prescribe me some as I have moved houses it took longer to get the meds and you are not even allowed to buy them at the counter.

thank you
