Just going to do a quick post

I was born 3mos premature.

I was in and out of the hospital for a year. My mother smoked, but not during the pregnancy.

It's a little over 19 years later and I have severe upper body weakness.

My hands are small and there is weak muscle. My hands are gnarled and claw-like. (This is not an exaggeration, this has been written on my disability forms.)

I have problems with hand-eye coordination, combined with this overall weakness it has been and is difficult for me when it comes to basic things such as swimming, riding a bicycle, and driving a car.

So PLEASE, think of your BABY, your CHILD and the PAIN they will have if you can't fight the disease for them-- if they survive at all! I almost didn't and my mother was fairly healthy!
