Huntington's Disease News Medical & Diet Health
When I was about thirteen years old, I read a book by Lurlene McDaniel and it mentioned Huntington's Disease. I became really interested in it, and it inspired me to try to write a story about somebody with it. It never came through, though. Last night I was talking to my fiance about an idea I had for a short story, since I have one due in my Creative Writing class, and I was considering bringing that old idea up again.
I think it's such a sad case because there is nothing they can do about it. There has been no cure found, no remedy heard of for it. I can only imagine how difficult it has to be on the family to watch somebody you love degenerate right in front of your eyes, and you're powerless to stop it.
