My Experience With Opd

I was diagnosed with OPD 3 and a half years ago, when my daughter was born....she has it also and was diagnosed at UC Davis medical center in Sacramento, CA. Not quite sure if we have Type 1/ Type II yet. My daughters case is more severe than mine was, and she was also recently diagnosed with autism. I had no idea how rare OPD is until I started reading up on it.

Hello Jen33172, My fingers are crossed for you and wish you all the best. I know what you are going through as I was diagnosed 12 years ago in London. Everyday is a struggle but you keep on going. I hope your daughter will be able to benefit from peoples experiences as she gets older which will help her to be strong. I posted a blog on OPD which you can see if you want,<br />

We as yet dont have a child as it seems that things are not so cut and dry for us but fingers crossed we will be blessed one day soon.<br />
<br />
Stay strong,<br />
<br />
Best wishes<br />
