This is NOT a Hypochondriacs' haven...

...oh no. I hereby declare that all conditions and disabilities hereby described on this site have been experienced by me or members of my immediate family or close friends. Which does make us all sound a bit tragic but actually we're just getting on with our lives just like 'normal' families. Right, disclaimers over.

Today's illness is labyrinthitis which Jordan's dad was pole-axed by last summer. He is now deaf in one ear and recovering his balance but it's a slow business. He also has raging tinnitus. Click here, here and indeed here for useful links.

I almost forgot this! Jordan has grown out of his Petit Mal seizures which just goes to show that good things can happen too, along with unexpected diagnoses.

Check out the website here.

I found this excellent website which has loads of useful info and handy links. Also this really interesting article that speaks of depression having an evolutionary purpose.

...just when we were basking in the negative result on the Fragile-X testing, along comes a referral for Scoliosis. I'll get back to you.
