Gina became a caregiver at a young age. By age 6, she was emotionally responsible for her mother, her brothers and herself, and she learned to mute her own needs for the sake of others. As an adult, she’s still shaking off the long-term effects of being parentified and learning to attend to her own human needs.Information about Prader-Willi syndrome & additional resources:https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32877518/https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/2360065/https://www.pwsausa.org/https://www.fpwr.org/You can read Gina’s work at http://ginadwagner.com/.ALSO!

You know how when someone asks "How are you?" you just say "Fine,” even if you’re totally dying inside, so everyone can go about their day? “Terrible, Thanks For Asking” is the opposite of that. Nora McInerny asks real people to share their complicated and honest feelings about how they really are. It’s sometimes sad, sometimes funny, and often both. From American Public Media.
