Blood tests #3

Susan from WA writes:

I had DNA tests done here in Australia – nothing.  It is not genetic I am told.  Rubbish!  My legs look like my mum’s and I now use her walking stick!

I grew up in NZ  and remember having sore legs and difficulty walking at times. Growing pains said the doctor.  I was a good all-round athlete, first and second.  A great sportswoman all my life.  Worked hard at physical jobs.  Desk jobs were no good for me.  Then a mild accident left me paralysed in a wheel chair for 7 months.  I got out.

Any similar stories?
