Forever S.I.T. #3

This year, I will be approaching a new stage in my life: college. As my educational opportunities have grown, I have learned more about Situs Inversus Totalis and the realistic difference that I can make upon this condition.

As I researched different news cases on Situs Inversus, I was able to find an exciting outcome. There is currently more research being done on the cause of the condition, as Situs Inversus is becoming more prevalent in the medical world. 

With this significant finding, it has given me more hope in trying to find a cause for this condition.  In the future, I hope that we will also be able to find treatments and cures for the side effects that result from this condition.

If anyone has anything to share regarding research, please feel free to comment!

 

True strength is delicate.

Forever S.I.T #2

In the past few months, I have gotten to know more people with this condition, Situs Inversus Totalis. It was very exciting to meet these people and build up connections with them. These people have family that are living with Situs Inversus, but with a more complex diagnosis, such as with primary ciliary dyskinesia. After talking and looking at many groups online, I was able to learn about the similarites and differences that we have in our lives. 

A few groups online: 

  • Dextrocardia and Situs Inversus

  • Total Situs Inversus with Dextrocardia

If there are any other groups that are bringing awareness about this condition, please don't hesitate to let me know. Thanks!

Forever S.I.T #1

For fifteen years I have been living with Situs Inversus Totalis.  Over these fifteen years I have had many experiences in music, sports, school, and life. In this post, I am sharing some of my personal thoughts and experiences living with SIT. 

Personal Views  

  • šLiving with this condition, has made me interested in the medical field and I want to be a doctor to help find a treatment for this condition. Also, I want to help those who have long term effects that are affecting their life.
  • šThis condition hasn’t really affected me mentally in any way but it has made me stronger and I am able to cope with the short term effects that I have as a result of Situs Inversus Totalis.
  • šPhysically, this condition has had minor effect. I have been able to participate in sports, feel fine and this condition hasn’t stopped me from doing any sort of physical activity such as running or soccer. I play soccer for school and I am able to keep up with all the running and playing. However, because of congestion and sinusitis, my breathing during running can be a little heavy and affect how I perform. 
  • Having this condition can make it difficult in everyday life, by having the constant cold or feelings of sickness but it is not impossible to overcome this and live a normal life. 

This condition has affected me and there are different effects for everyone who has it. However, it it not impossible to overcome this and live a normal life. I will always be living with this condition and there will always be new discoveries and experiences that will take place as a result of Situs Inversus.  

There are some things that you’ll never get over, but if you use all of your strength there’s nothing that you can’t get through.
