The Voice of a Young Girl with Turner Syndrome

I happened across the blog and website of a 12 year-old girl with Turner Syndrome. It took me back to my childhood. There are some things that she has written that appear to be taken directly from my personal journals from that time (you know, what writers had before the Internet). It was really refreshing to be reminded of how far I've come, how much I've grown in 15 years. It is certainly to be expected, but when it hits you in the face, you have to sit back in wonder!

Anyway, she is quite a poised young lady for 12. You can find her links below. She has a promising future as a writer and web designer!

I would not have been able to do that at 12 years old. I also have Turners and never met another woman with turners until I was 40 years old. I'm glad she is sharing her story so other girls and women can know they are not alone.

Cheryl -

Thanks for commenting too. I agree, I couldn't have done that at 12 either. Her writing reminds me of my PERSONAL writing from when I was 12, but I wouldn't have had the guts to put it out there at that age. She is really helping other girls with TS. I hope that she realizes that.
