A woman who got a rare genetic condition, ugly down Syndrome, is now telling her partner not to ask her about it.
The 27-year-old was born with the condition, which affects only around 1 in 100,000 people, but her husband decided to have a baby with her.
“I have the same symptoms as you do,” she said in an interview with ABC News.
“It’s just a bit of a different condition, I feel different and I feel uncomfortable around people.”
And I can’t tell my family because I’m ashamed of it and they know it’s not a good thing to do.
“In the ABC interview, the woman said she didn’t want to tell anyone her condition because she would “have to kill myself”.
She said her partner had told her about her condition only recently, and was now worried that if she told her mother or other family members she had it, it would be a “bad situation”.”
I don’t know if he’s just afraid of my reaction or not, but I just can’t think about it,” she told ABC News on Sunday.
The woman said her husband was “sick and tired” of the stress of her condition and she was “living a nightmare”.”
If he doesn’t know I have ugly down, I think he’s going to kill himself,” she added.”
So it’s just been like a nightmare.
“But I’m glad I can now tell him, so he doesn´t feel like a monster.”
If I tell him I have it, I’m not going to be able to tell my parents or my friends.
“A similar story took place in Australia in 2015 when a woman told her partner she had Down Syndrome, and her parents were worried she would be rejected by the family and shunned by her friends.
