maybe im just being a hypochondriac, but ive been reading up on marfan syndrome and its creepy how much it describes me...thought not to a really serious extent. the tallness and thinness, the spider-like hands, the narrow face, small jaw, crowded teeth, the curving, hunchback spine, arrythmias, shortness of breath, all of that is me...i even have a slight indentation in my chest.

from reading about it i've gathered that it's a connective tissue disorder. the scary thing is, if i do have it there isnt much i can do, since its caused by a gene abnormality... so are there any conditions that mimic it? do i just have weak connective tissue? im so confused
