Welcome to X and Y variations and Klinefelter syndrome POSITIVE TRAITS.
This article is for all X and Y Chromosome variations. I have Klinefelter syndrome and will be talking about it more often.
This might be the first of many Klinefelter syndrome positive articles you will read on the internet. When I first started spreading awareness about living with Klinefelter syndrome, I noticed there was no positive information. Nothing was from those who live with a condition and everything was the “typical negative medical symptoms and medical diagnosis”. After many months of searching I only found this one positive article about Mathew who I happened to meet in the early parts of my travels and now I mentor him.
All my life I have consider myself very creative, hands-on, visual and like to live life outside “the box”. And in todays society there is no “Normal” as everyone is different and embraces that difference. There are people who will try and make you feel horrible for being “different”. This article is to focus on all the good in our lives and the Klinefelter syndrome positive traits.
In the last year I have traveled around the USA, meeting people with Klinefelter syndrome and X and Y variations. It has been a life changing experience. I have spent my own savings account to spread much needed awareness. In doing so I have made countless friends and continue to have so much passion. I have noticed many amazing and positive similarities in each one of these wonderful people. Having met over 400 unique and amazing kids, adults, teachers, and doctors. Each person is trying to help make a difference in our community. It has become my mission to help spread positivity and teach people about the hidden talents of these individuals.
For those of us with Klinefelter syndrome like myself, we are truly amazing people who just happen to have an extra X chromosome. Most adults who are diagnosed understand the difficulties in our lives as we live day to day with the stigmas and the medical difficulties. Our whole lives we have been told “who we are” by a medical professional who thinks they understand day to day live living with a condition.
Being born this way does not define who you are or what you can and cannot do with your life. I want you to use this website and the information to educate the world about what this condition is really about. Word of mouth is the most powerful type of communication. I believe we can help educate ourselves and others with an emphasis on the positive side of life. I will not let the list of problems and health risks define who I am, or shut me down before I even give it a chance. This list is a compilation from people I have met along the way. If you want to add something to this list that you as an adult with a condition or your child with a condition please email me at Info@livingwithxxy.com and I will add your positivity to the list. Thank you
