I'm dying. But not today.
My youngest son never knows what to tell people. I have a rare life threatening condition and I can get very sick very fast. I can have to be hospitalized with little notice. I survive things other people think I couldn't possibly have survived so we must be making it up. But we have records!
The thing is I look good. I look 10-20 years younger than I am. I'm 52 and people think my 26 year old son is my husband all the time. I got these great young looking genes from my father's side of the family.
My 21 year old son owns a house and takes care of me. He's the one that doesn't know what to tell people. I've been sick since I was pregnant with him. I am one of the oldest survivers in the country with my disease. The doctors don't know how long I'll live. One of my doctors says the way I take care of myself I could live to be 100. I could have a pulmonary emboli and die today.
