I myself have facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy, and if you have ever watched a Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon, well that's me, however my type of muscular dystrophy, (facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy) is some what rare and unlike most people you see on the telethon suffering from some sort of muscular dystrophy who are young children; facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy usually comes along and starts making you sick at about age 32, rarely is it fatal, one percent of us can go blind. The chance's of someone coming down with it is about 1 out of 400,000 Americans will be diagnosed with facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy. Those numbers mean that in San Diego who's 2010 population was 1,301,617 people there are only 3 of us who have this disease. In the Sate of California with a population of 37,253,956 people which means on average there are 93 of us in this state suffering from facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy. In the United States there are with a population of 312,780,968 people there are only around 718 people in this whole country who have facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy. Then in the world with a right at this second population of 7,007,803,250 people, there are 17,519 of us world wide with this disease.
I am in a lot of pain, my blood pressure medicines as well as many others get changed quite often so as a handy reference this is a great book, and now that I am going to school it will also be a great tool for obtaining my degree in alcohol and drug counselor, and possibly as it is to me, maybe you may just find it intresting.
