Brooke Greenberg is 12.5 years old.
However, she looks like she's about 6-12 months old, or at the oldest a handicapped 2 year old
Does she hold the secret to biological immortality? Not likely. As mentioned in a couple articles
, all her life (and even before she was born) she's suffered from severe health problems, almost dying. I think she's more of a biological novelty than anything.

AD/HD Awareness day!
I have ADD, I was diagnosed with it in 2nd grade. I had a very hard time learning math. I remember not being allowed to go camping with the other girl scouts as a punishment for my bad marks. I was treated for it, which worked very well until I got into college.
College was very hard for me, I had a hard time focusing, most of it felt like some weird bad dream. I was only able to manage to squeak by many of the classes I took.
Then last summer, I had an ovarian cyst and an infection in my colon. I went to see my doctor, and she asked me about my bowel movements. I was constipated most of the time, unbeknown to me. I changed my diet, eliminating wheat and gluten-containing food to fix that (my uncle's doctor told him that cutting out wheat helps the gut move stuff faster), and was already on a dairy-free diet due to lactose intolerance.
That, for lack of a better term "Cured" my ADD. A gluten-free casein-free diet (casein is a protein found in dairy products).
Now I'm medication free and function better than I ever did when I was on medication.
Anyway I figured I'd post this in honor of the day.

I now work in the "Government Serology Lab" and work with blood samples for HIV (AB) testing for the Army and Navy. It's a boring job, it requires NOTHING I learned in college, and I hope to find a better one soon.
I have a million rants I'd love to do, about how messed up the world is, and how skewed other people are, but really, I question to what end ranting and posting will ever change anything. Either way, I promised a post, and am overdo on said promise, so here it is. I apologize for it's brevity.

Current Music: City of Villains sound
Jamie's over and we decided to have some fun with City of Villains (even though our characters are not actually evil).( Read more...Collapse )
Just our speculation as to what Luten looked like. :-)

I need special therapy to eat bitter foods. Becuase of the childhood trauma of mom’s bad cooking, I seek sweet foods insteed of natural bitter foods. I have to watch the ads they run with the Saturday morning cartoons while a therapist beats me with a bat. I am now married to a plate of cooked spinach.

That is one of the funniest things I've ever read in my entire life.

I got my grades. All As save one B. I think that's good enough to qualify me for the dean's list. (At my college it requires a 3.75 GPA my self-calculated GPA is 3.78.)

I've graduated from college with a B.S. in Biology. But that's not important to this post.
This confession is not a confession in the traditional sense of one confessing what one has done wrong. It is a confession in the sense that I'm going to self-disclose something deeply personal.
I am a sapphist, a lesbian. I am attracted to other women, romantically and aesthetically. When I was a young child I wanted to be the "prince" (strong, noble, and brave) and rescue the princess (someone gentle and feminine I could adore), and I still do to this day.
Yes I've dated men, even kissed and more than that that - but it's always felt "not right" and artificial. I used to tell myself that was just some sort of a failing on my part. But now I understand myself better.
It's odd, I had suspected it for a while, but normally wrote it off as "well, most people are bisexual to some degree, I guess I find < insert name of girl > hot (or hott if you're a young person :-p) for that reason, and I'm just very picky about guys, that's why I can only think of one that I've ever found attractive to any degree."
It's odd, despite this likely making my life harder (homophobic parents), I get an odd sense of ease from recognizing and acknowledging it. It's like a piece to the puzzle that is "self" to me.
