My name's Justin. I just found out that I'm e4/e4, through 23andme. Despite the unsettling news that my brain is (probably) hardwired to self-destruct in the next 30-40 years, I feel very blessed to be finding this out in my early 30s, with lots of time to pursue prevention.
Anyway, I'm glad to be a part of this online community

And I'm curious about family history, how you found out about your genotype, and how your parents have fared, since they each have at least one copy of the e4 allele.

I collect everything and always have big plans to get organized. I finally have accepted that when I die, someone is going to get lots of bargains, just like I did at Auctions and EBay over the years. Just be yourself and whatever that is, is fine that is if you are kind to other people. You don't get any pass to treating others badly. You do need to keep yourself as healthy as you can and the APOE4 site will give you lots of good information. I am in much better health than I would have been without this site. Welcome!
