I agree Isa, when you can believe that you are well life looks so much brighter

So what do I tell my friend R?  She's convinced she has Huntington's disease.  Her father had it and just died yesterday.  Her older brother has it and is a vegetable.  He can hardly walk and can't feed or change himself.  He's about 24--he's been really bad off for about 8 years.  Her father was in his late 40s.  Before he died he was in a mental institution for many years.  So my friend R and her sister, my good, sweet friend M, are told they might come down with it any day now.  R is terrified of it. She's in college now and is doing really well and not showing signs at all, but she's so paranoid of it that she says she will never marry or have children because she doesn't want to make someone take care of her.  M she's not going to worry about it, but she also thinks maybe she shouldn't have children.  It's so sad.  Both girls are just as sweet and beautiful as can be.

One can get genetic testing done to see if one has inherited the gene for it.

My brother's good friend died from Huntington's as a young man about 20+ years ago. The disease was so prevalent in the males of their family that the family allowed researcher's to exhume the remains of those in their family that had died from the disease for genetic sampling. As a result, this family was instrumental in helping to isolate the gene responsible for Huntington's.

I would certainly want to follow the genotype diet if I were in her shoes...

R wants to have the genetic testing done and is planning on it in the near future.  M doesn't want to know.  I don't blame her. I think I'd be like, "Ya know, I'm gonna fight it for all I'm worth and not give in till all friends say, 'Okay, you're insane now, and we're going to lock you away'," and then I'd admit defeat.  But I guess I'm just stubborn that way.  

I'll loan her my book.  I don't know if she'll even be interested, but.....boy, I'd be.

I think they both take comfort in the fact that it seems to be prevalent in the males of the family.
