RANDTS will last a thousand years.

- Albert

This is an old post on Maelstrom that has to be shared on RANDTS.

Henry requested me to post about my disease. Well I won't be writing very specific details about my disease because I will copying it lock, stock and barrel if I do but I will give links to sites that explain my conditions. Furthermore, I'm not authority on my disease so it is better for you all to read links.

Well, I suffer from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) a muscle wasting disease that is caused by a genetic mutation. DMD is hereditary and has absolutely no cure. It affects 1 in 3000 boys and we have a life expectancy of around 21. Glory and death!

Well slowly DMD sufferers get weaker and weaker and will finally be only able to make practical their wrist, fingers, neck and head. Furthermore, our respiratory system and heart are also affected by muscle wasting. (Causing all sorts of problems that need to be treated.) Death is usually caused by suffocation or heart failure. Even brushing my teeth or eating an apple may prove fatal (isolated cases).

For a pictorial guide to my disease click here. For an encyclopedia article about DMD click here.

I hope nobody had their daylights scared out of them by this post. ^_^

All questions about me and DMD are welcomed in fact you all should ask about me. Don't worry about offending me because I'm willing to share my experiences. My skin is as thick as crocodile hide. Hahahaha. Bring in the questions as comments.

    Haha, I can't drink beer quickly. It's very harsh on the throat, I think. I prefer something smooth and sweet, like smoothies and hot chocolate and caramel macchiatos, haha!
