I'm a 15 year old girl who's had Turner's Syndrome since birth. For most of my life I thought it was pretty normal, nothing to worry about. Until I reached high school, and everything started to change. I finally started to realize that everyone pretty much towered over me, I was developing differently than other girls, and I just started to feel different than everyone else. Now, where ever I go I just feel extremely self conscious about my height. I'm only 4'9 and most of the people in my school are really tall. I do have some good friends and for the most part they understand about my TS, but they don't understand what I'm going through. I just feel like I have no one to talk to and I'm so different than everyone else. I don't get bullied very much but I get comments about my height all the time. I have dreams and goals that I'd like to pursue but I feel like it's going to be this way for my whole life. I feel like I'm not going to go anywhere or be anything in life because I'm going to be judged because of my height. So, just a question for anyone else that has TS: Does it get better?
