Check out my Welcome post which will give you some general information about what WS is all about. I am also using this blog as an outlet for my mind– all my musings and fun thoughts, so all are welcome and let’s enjoy this adventure.
This blog is focused on mostly my life with Williams Syndrome and the highs and lows that I have had. And educating the world about Williams Syndrome. Because when I was younger, I must admit that I felt very alone with my disability.
For the longest time, I wanted to share my stories, thoughts, and experiences that I have had. I also wanted this blog to be a source of comfort, honesty, unity, and community for those who have someone, know someone, or is someone with Williams Syndrome.
Do you know how often someone is diagnosed with Williams Syndrome?
Williams Syndrome has historically been estimated to occur in roughly 1 in every 20,000 live births. However, more recent epidemiological studies have placed the occurrence rate at closer to 1 in every 7,500 live births, a significantly larger prevalence.
I was diagnosed with Williams Syndrome at about 1 or 2 years old, so this is one reason why I wanted to start this blog because not a lot of people know a lot about what Williams Syndrome is or what life with Williams Syndrome is like.
You will see posts about a variety of topics. I will introduce you to the people who play essential roles in my life, poems, stories, quotes, and a variety of other things. My goal here is to try my best to keep the mood light and airy. I will try to have guest posts from those who have or know of someone who has Williams Syndrome.
This is my personal blog so this is my voice but I like to use this as a place to also educate about Williams Syndrome.
So feel free to reach out, share the blog, and spread the word about Williams Syndrome, and feel free to message me with any further questions, suggestions, ideas or just to say hi.
Thank you for reading,
