My Story

I'm never good at writing down/typing out my story, but here it goes. Ever since I was young, (4-5 yrs old) when I would get sick it wouldn't make me calm, want to cuddle with mom or dad, or anything you would associate with a small child getting sick. I would get crazy hyper (bouncing off the wall). We never knew why or that it was due to a condition that 1 in 200 kids have. I've always struggled with ADD, ADHD, OCD, and a few tics - again never knowing it was something curable. Jumping ahead to my 7th grade year of school I started playing Volleyball, and found out athletics and physical labor is "My happy place"/ "What I'm built for". There was a problem though, we never knew 3thing about my knees. 1 my right femur is 5CMlonger then the other, 2 there is no well (cup like formation) under my knee caps so the have nothing to control the motion (other then my tendons and musculs, which I was building and working the wrong group because of volleyball), and 3 knee caps are set to high. This all added to my coditions I didn't know I had. My knees would give out all the time, twisting and turning the wrong ways. So 10th grade I had left knee surgery to stop all the dislocations and the year after high school I had my right knee "fixed".
