Two long years of questioning illness–
     Why me?
     What’s wrong?
No help from the doctors
“It’s all in your head.”
Finally, a test, a possible genetic
disorder, maybe a diagnosis.
Anxiously a week’s wait for the one word answer:
     normal, carrier, affected.
Too scared to read teh results:
Fatal genetics or only more questions.

I’m late for the wonderful event that is Friday Flash 55, hosted by G-man.

    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

    • It is in my goats. I have some unknown genetic disorder that causes kids and some older goats to just die very quickly once they become affected. For two years I’ve been trying to figure out what it is so I can figure out how to breed it out of them. Today the blood tests of one of the very few diagnosable disorders came back negative, so I’m back to starting all over again.
