My Sweet Osteogenesis Imperfecta

Hi i'm Rúben

Hi, I'm Rúben. I'm 30 years old and live in Portugal. I have osteogenesis imperfecta. I like sports, and heavy metal music, Slipknot, and Moonspell are my favorite bands.

My story

Growing up with osteogenesis imperfecta was a big challenge, even today it is not easy but it is under control. I had the perfect idea that my life would be a little different from those of my friends from an early age. I was a fragile child who could break a bone at any moment, but that didn't stop me from doing anything, or I was a little rebel without fear of my condition. I've always liked sports a lot, I started swimming when I was 6 years old but it wasn't enough, I needed more. In January 2007 I began to practice weight training to recover from a fracture in my left arm, I saw that I got stronger, with less pain in the body, I gained more mobility, and it was fundamental to strengthening my body and mind. In 2013, I was challenged to surf for the 1st time, it was one of the best decisions I ever made. Surfing gave me freedom and was a huge help for my inclusion in society, it was the first time that I didn't feel limited to my Osteogenesis Imperfecta. Since that day I have never stopped surfing and it has been a very fun journey.

I hope you enjoyed my story, be well, lots of hugs.
