October is National Dwarfism Awareness Month

October is National Dwarfism Awareness month. All month long I will be posting facts about dwarfism or stories about my life. I also share posts on Facebook and if anyone is interested in following me on Facebook my Blog Page is http://www.facebook.com/LittlePerson123

I would greatly appreciate your support.

October 1st post:

There are over 300 types of dwarfism and the type I have is called Saul Wilson Syndrome and it’s a very rare dwarfism. There are now believed to be 17 people who have been diagnosed with my dwarfism. I am the oldest female.

I am 31 years old and I grew up not having answers about my dwarfism. My mom, aunt and I would go to Little People of America conventions and talk with doctors or others in hopes that they could help me. I started going to the conventions when I was about 4 or 5 and it wasn’t until I was in my twenties that I found a doctor who was willing to help me in my search for answers.
