My Health Story- Part 1

A lot of times,  I  will tag this blog with Chronic Illness,  so I have decided to explain why:

I was born in 64 weighing 5 lbs 4 oz.  I was lethargic and vomiting a lot of the time.   As I grew older,  I did not eat well because every time I tried,  I would vomit.

I had a Sister born the prior year with the same symptoms but she died a month or so after birth,  so it was up to my doctors to discover what was wrong.
   My mother was told that I could be a Vegetable if I survived.
   The first 2 years of my life were spent in the hospital,  plus,  a few trips home.   My diagnosis was Propionic Academia, where I cannot metabolize  an amino acid.   Plus,  was put on a low – protein diet.
