Hi, I don’t think I’m going to have that problem with my family (children and siblings)! They are amazed at my strange and many health issues over the years and especially during the last 18 months when POTS symptoms came on. They do not want my life! They’re scared to have anything I get diagnosed with and I’m sure they’ll jump at the chance to have their own health investigated to rule out any of the same diagnosis’.
My kids are adults now but still top priority for me! I don’t take them to doctors anymore (!) but they are keenly aware of what’s going on with me and how it may in time affect them as well. They, along with my hubby, are my very supportive partners during this mysterious health journey.
Today I received my 23andME gene kit and am eager to get that sent away for analysis. It will be good to know which disorders I may be susceptible to which in turn might be passed on to my kids.
