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.
