OftenBen:

This stuff gets me teary. A single 'T' that should have been an 'A' has made my life immensely difficult and complicated. Future generations might not have to deal with such petty, stupid illnesses.

I have very firmly written myself out of the genetic legacy of the species, because of my illness. I can't control others choices, but I can choose to say 'this stops with me.'

A day may come where I could have children without feeling like a selfish monster.

What a time to be alive. Maybe not a time of heroes, but maybe a time of miracles.
