Yeah, it has helped a lot just going through the HD tag here and hearing people’s stories that sound just like mine, when I felt like I’m the only one in the world who feels this way. It’s great, I’ve already spoken to a couple people now including you since I decided to talk about it on tumblr! So for you, is it that you’re at risk, or you have it in the family? I really need to start getting involved with HD, it’s such a tragic disease and so unheard of that it breaks my heart. and if those of us that know it don’t speak up and help out, then nobody will.
This past week all I have been thinking about is Huntington’s. We’re going to wait until my sister gets back home in August to talk to my mom about it. This disease is like a nightmare realized and when my family has ignored it for all of my life, it hits me so hard when I admit it may be finally happening to my mom. And I’m selfish and all I think about is that in a matter of time it will be me. 50% chance of inheriting this. with me and my sister, it seems almost impossible that at least one of us won’t have it. Every time I think about it, my muscles start to twitch or I drop something and just want to freak the fuck out. I’m 22 and already planning how my suicide will play out if I carry this disease in me and it starts to show symptoms. And I never would want to kill myself. But if you google or YouTube Huntington’s Disease and read what it really does and see what it Really looks like, you’d be figuring out how you’d kill yourself too before your brain literally disintegrates and you lie in bed writhing for a decade before it kills you. I don’t know, if there’s anyone on here that is affected by HD, or lives with it in their family, it would be cool to hear some words from someone my age that knows how I feel, because I’ve never known anyone else with this in their family.
