So, one of what I think is one of the benefits of being born with a medical condition is that kind of by default I know a lot of stuff that not many other people have cared about or needed to know. I know a heck of a lot about cranial nerves and what they do (and since most people look at you like you’re from outer space when you mention cranial nerves, that’s a big one!), a bit about genetics, lots about speech and occupational therapy, and miscellaneous things about other conditions and medical issues that I don’t myself face but that I know from my involvement with the Moebius community. And I like having this information. I think it makes me more self-aware and a better advocate for my own medical needs. Some people may think that this extra information we have had to learn kind of by default is a negative consequence of being born with Moebius syndrome, but I think the opposite.
