"As a baby I was diagnosed with a rare metabolic disease called "Mitochondrial Cytopathy", a disease that little is known about. This caused my muscles to become very weak and I developed scoliosis, I am partially deaf and tired more quickly. How I would evolve, how old I would become and whether I would ever be able to eat, talk and walk was a big question mark for a long time. After 3 surgeries where they extended the rods in my back, it turned out that the screws came loose under my skin, so that the metal bars almost pierced my skin. Fortunately, they were able to fix my back permanently at the age of thirteen. I still take medication for the nagging pain every day. There is no cure for my disease, only medication (Vitamin E) that can control the disease."
