Hi I am a college age girl with PCD and Situs Inversus. I have never talked to anyone that has the same disease. There is a lot I would like to talk about with others about the condition, but recently I have been wondering about sports and athletic performance. Both sides of my family are d1 basketball and tennis players, so athleticism runs in my genes. I grew up playing and exceeding in sports, but when I got to the highschool level, it became too much to handle because of all of the extra running and in order to qualify, I had to be able to run 2 miles. This was too much with my PCD, so I reluctantly had to quit. Now in college, I tried out for a tennis team. I knew I could take it as I have the skills, but I got too tired during tryouts while playing multiple singles matches. This is just one of the many setbacks PCD has brought to my life including academics (missing up to 80 days of school some years), social (not being able to always go out with friends), and generally being comfortable in my own skin due to the setbacks my disease has brought me.
Can anyone relate to any of this stuff? It would be very helpful so hear someone who has similar issues.
