I was born 6 weeks premature and my bones were not fuzzed together, so the doctors literally strapped me down so I couldn't move because they were afraid my skull would hit my brain and cause brain damage. (Which they thought happened because I developed very slow and didn't walk or talk until age 3). Because of being strapped down flat, all of my bones settled compactly and my head is completely flat in the back. Because of this, my rib cage is compressed and I have breathing problems due to the fact that my lungs have no room to expand when I breathe. I have tachycardia and mitral valve prolapse, and I also have sleep apnea, which I think are related to the compressed bone structure. (nothing has room to function properly in my body.) Because of the breathing issues, I have a lot of fatigue. I have three grown children which I had naturally. I had a cyst in my abdomen that grew to the size of a grapefruit before they found it and had emergency surgery at the age of 43, and I had a hysterectomy at the age of 46. I have had many struggles throughout my life and suffer from depression at times.
