    Do you have a family curse, and you do what is it?

    I don't mean something supernatural, but something genetic, or a common emotional trait.

    I like this question and after going through a number of problems that are re-occuring in my life I have stopped to consider if me and my family are subjects of an ongoing curse. The problems we face are a repeated occourance of serious crime, ill health, and other problems. I spent time last year looking into curses. I didn't learn much but  I do think that the curse is transmitted down the line through Genes and may have been placed on someone in the family several hundred or thousands of years ago. I've tried to look up how to curse jixes, hexes and curses and the bulk of the advice seems to say to pray and ask for gods help. My knowledge about curses is not extensive but it is an area that is of interest to me. And I do not think that such things are impossible or unreal.

    Diabetes....I'll be devestated if any of my children got it too.
    As far back as I know it started with my grans sister (Ivy). She had type 2 for years. Then when I was 8 I got type 1 followed by my uncle (Ivys son) with type 2 due to obesity. A year after my own diagnosis as my family were just starting to grip onto the idea, my youngest of two elder brothers got type 1. Since then My grandad has been diagnosed and if my boyfreind isnt careful I'm worrired he'l get type 2 also. My brother is amazing at controlling his glucose levels whereas I'm terrible and used to be in and out of hospital all the time. However I've learnt my lessons and am now well controlled, but like I say I hope my children dont get it and if they do, they wont be an idiot like myself. smile

    Poor  circulation  I  exercise  and  try  my  best  to   eat  right  in  order  to  keep it  in  check. By  the  way  there  is  no  such  thing  as  curses. If  you  believe  you  are  cursed  than  you  will be, it  is as  simple  as  that.
