Health knowledge made personal
I found about huntington's being in my family over ten years ago, and am currently watching my mum's progression. I am hoping to use the blog to explore the situation, and explore how her illness and her subsequent behaviour can be handled so that it doesn't destroy me or the other relationships in my family. I know now that I too carry the gene for Huntington's. I am not symptomatic. So this blog will also record my fight against the disease, my hopes and fears, and our hopes to start our own family free from this delibitating illness. I hope that my story will help other people to overcome their struggles, and that it will help me and my family in the future to remember what we are fighting for.
