    I don't understand why they are subjecting me

    to this? They first suggested Turner Syndrome to me 2 years ago and referred me for yet more bloodwork on my hormones - the laugh of it being that I've already had the exact same tests done twice to date... and each time, they have come back to be normal. If I had normal level...

    Hi I am a 20 year old girl in the uk.

    I was diagnosed with mosaic turners when I was born but I've never even thought about the condition that I have, it's never really effected me (except with my height) and the doctors are useless - I've not had TS check up in 7 years. Lately I've been in a bit of a downward...

    I remember this one particular play at school.

    .. I "won" the role of Can Can dancer - they wanted a line of us to perform the Can Can on the stage for some reason. I know I was not particularly dancing with joy to find out that I had the role and even in junior school, I kicked up a debate on it. I knew I'd suck at this...

    Hi! I'm 17 years old,

    and I was diagnosed with Turner's syndrome when I was a baby. At school, a lot of people don't understand me, and so I don't have a lot of friends and often feel lonely. Any advice? :)

    I was diagnosed with TS at birth.

    Slowly, I think I am learning to accept myself as I am. When I was younger I spent a lot of time wishing I could be different: taller, thinner, prettier. This was a waste of my energy.
