I had a sister who had a mitochondrial disease. Hers was quite extreme, it hit hard and fast and she lived only for 4 years after being diagnosed (she was 14 when she passed away). In fact it would have been her birthday today.

My questions are: do you have any siblings? Do they also have a mitochondrial disease? Have you considered having your genes sequenced to understand more about the mutation of the mitochondria?

Thanks for sharing, it's very interesting to me to hear someone's experiences as I had never heard of someone other than my sister.
