Hello everyone! What a great idea!!!!!
My name is Tania and I am from Toronto, Canada. I am 30 and my hubby is 32. We have been married for almost 5 yrs. We have a 5 months old baby girl, who is our first.
I do not have the actual diagnosis yet [img]http://www.ichthyosis.com/ubb/confused.gif
[/img] (waiting to see the doc and hopefuly get some conclusive tests), but both my daughter and I seem to have IV. Since IV is a dominant trait, I assume she got it from me [img]http://www.ichthyosis.com/ubb/mad.gif
[/img] and at times feel very guilty for passing it on to her (not that I have any control over it).
We do not have any pets, but we love animals. One of these days we will get our fish tanks running again and start fish breeding. It used to be a lot of fun (and cleaning lol)
My hubby is a computer geek too!!! Actually we both have Computer Sience degree, though I decided after a while that I don't like programming anymore and now hoping to get into Human Resources. I am half way done getting my post graduate certificate in HR (just hope I have time to take the rest of classes to complete it).
I never met anyone with IV and thought I was the only one suffering from it, but now thanks to www I realise that there are people who have it out there and hope to share our stories and things that worked for us.
