Genetic disorders are complicated.

Anyway, your post #13 suggests you know what caused your specific disorder, so I'm not really sure what this post is about.

It's not really ever the parents' "fault" unless they know they have a hereditary genetic condition.

In your case, it seems unlikely this is your parents' fault and is probably unrelated to the fact that they're cousins.

In my case it is pretty hard to explain. I’m the only female in my family who has endometriosis.

In other cases, for example sickle cell anaemia, the 2 parents can carry the sickle cell trait and then their child can come out with sickle cell anaemia, this is a more serious blood disorder which kills you and you could say the parents are to blame, if they knew they both had the sickle cell trait but you can’t control who you fall in love with.

Why do these conditions even exist?

Genetic disorders exist because of random mutations in DNA.

Genetic problems can happen even when the two parents have no family links and are very different genetically and both very healthy people because they can just happen spontaneously (as another poster said). Sorry that you have suffered from this but looks like you are getting better and stronger x

I can’t eat normally to this day, still eat 1 meal a day, at most 2 meals a day.
Surely your eating disorder is a bit of confounding factor?


it's their fault in the sense that they agreed to marry their cousin despite knowing that this was associated with a chance their kids might have a genetic condition. it's not their fault in the sense that they can't help having dodgy genes.

its not an eating disorder its from feeding difficulties as a result of the genetic disorder and the fact that people with my genetic disorder don’t feel hungry that often.

Except that you are also under an eating disorder service (I remember your old post; I doubt there is more than one user on this site with your diagnosis)

There are loads of people out there with the same condition.

I thought that user has been banned from the site and I heard that they were discharged from the eating disorder service because they refused treatment and was impossible to get them to engage and they insulted the therapists about their weight.

You know you could just give a detailed explanation in this thread? No reason for OP to message you.

OP's problem actually seems unrelated to her parents' relationship.

Hoping to solve OP's problems by introducing some new genes to the family, I presume
