Re: Just discovered I'm 4/4, rocked.

Hey Trevor. I just wanted to chime in as a 28 year old 3/4 who also had her world rocked two years ago when I found out as well. What a lot of people won’t tell you when you find out about this news is that it’s OK to feel awful about it. It really is. Take some time to acknowledge how it scares you...

"Freaking out" update

Hey, all. I'm the person behind this post: https://www.apoe4.info/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=6519 I figured I'd chime in for an update. I'm definitely not as freaked out as I used to be. Sometimes AD will sneak in as a little fear, but I acknowledge the fear with mindfulness and it goes away rel...

Re: How do I stop freaking out about this?

Thank you to everyone for responding. I know that eventually this pain will fade and I'll be much more accepting of this. I know already that I've been feeling really good lately. I had a solid day today and I only thought about it a few times. I'm not much of a "defeatist" per say. I want...

How do I stop freaking out about this?

Let me say first off that I 100% understand that I’m taking this way too hard. I’m a 28 year old 3/4. I hopefully will have a long life ahead of me. I’m on a low carb, very low sugar diet. I exercise daily. My job is very brain intensive, among other things, and am constantly playing puzzle video ga...

Re: 3/4! Hello!

Thanks Mike! I actually cut out soda and other sugars more than two years ago as a way to manage my anxiety (and it’s improved so much since then!). I’m willing to say goodbye to my beloved white grape juice. Maybe I’ll send my final container off a waterfall for a Viking funeral or something. That’...

Re: 3/4! Hello!

Thank you both so much for your responses! It’s good to know I’m not alone. I should have clarified in my post that I’ve been on the gluten free diet for 18 years due to possible Celiac disease (and guess who is for sure staying on it!). I’ve also been pretty relaxed on dairy but now I’m looking int...

3/4! Hello!

Hello! Thank you so much for opening up this community. I’m a female 3/4 (guessing 3 and haven’t had a computer to check my full report) and 23andme sent my report to me on MY BIRTHDAY, ouch. My mom is 3/3 and sister is 3/3 so it was a pretty big shock. I was pretty terrified of this result at first...
