Welcome to the positive traits of having an x and y variation.  This might be the first of many positive articles you will read and go to for information from now on.  I wanted to help people see that there are. For me I share many of these with other 47xxy guys. We are truly amazing people that just have an x-extra.  Though we all understand the difficulties in our lives and some at a younger age don’t understand but with loving and helping parents and peers we can push ourselves to be and do whatever we want.  It just might take a little x-extra work. Being born this way does not define who you are as a person 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 all about.  Word of mouth is the most powerful type of communication. 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.  I do know that I have struggled with many of the things that are on this list but I have found ways to make my life easier and move forward. Thinking outside the box instead of being labeled and forced into a box.
