I came across this article today about a rare disorder. It was certainly depressing, but almost any topic related to aging is interesting to me, and therefore worth posting. A young woman from China at age 29 gave birth to her first child. After the birth, she began to show signs of rapid aging. She suffers from cutix laxa- a connective tissue disorder. She is otherwise healthy.
Her son is now embarrassed to tell his friends that she is his mother. What a horrible thing to experience. Thankfully, her husband is supportive. There are only about 200 cases of this worldwide.
