I Am My Own Twin
« on: December 29, 2017, 05:21:54 PM »

I was born with a rare genetic condition, called Chimerism. Due to my condition, I have a straight line that runs down the center of my torso, dividing two different colors of skin pigmentation. This is because “I Am My Own Twin.” I'm a fraternal twin who fused together with my sibling in the womb and my second color skin pigmentation is my twins DNA/cells. I’ve been told, I have two immune systems and two bloodstreams. I have unusual sensitivities and allergies to foods, medications, supplements, jewelry, and insect bites. My body reacts to my twins' DNA and cells as foreign matter, compromising my immune system to be much lower than an average person. I unfortunately suffer with random autoimmune and health challenges due to my particular case of Chimerism. As of today, there are only 100 cases documented of my condition in the world.

That is pretty and interesting. I'm sorry to hear about your immune system. Drink tea and stay healthy
