Today, my father, who I haven't spoken to in over 12 years, contacted me. He just wanted to let me know that I should get tested for a rare neurological disease. The only thing the man has given to me since my conception is potentially a death certificate. FML

I’m sorry this happened to you, but at least he contacted you about it! If you have whatever the disease is, now you have the chance to take symptom relief medicine for it.

Huntington’s Disease? At least you have a heads up on knowing whether you have it or not and can deal with it.

Some can be headed off with meds and therapies to slow them down if caught in time. If you can find it before symptoms show, that can save your life. If you educate yourself on the disease, you will know the early symptoms so you can get retested. I wish they found my issues when I was younger. It’d be much easier to manage them.

To be fair, you would have eventually gotten one of those anyway. Regardless of a disease or not.
