    I've decided to write a book about a teenage boy that suddenly out of the blue discovers he has a disease or a type of syndrom that is deadly or just very interesting and complicates life. I want it so he can still live everyday as normal as possible so he can interact for a while, but gradually becomes less able to cope with reality. I am not very smart about any syndromes or diseases, so I come here to ask of you to help a writer out. Please and thanks. I'm not too sure if I explained it very well, so if there's some confusion just ask any questions.

    use croup or bronchitis.

    I had to spen a few weeks in an oxygen tent when I was about 3,
    and I couldn't imagine how that would change things in my life now.
    Something like that would work well for your plot development becaue
    it really creeps up on a person. He'd probably think it was cancer,
    which would also add to the conflicts. AND you could tie in a smoking
    message and be a hero.

    yay for the hero!

    By smoking message you mean a message implieing(sp) that marijuana is good? I'm probably misinterpreting(sp) your advice there, so explain a bit better.

    Anti-cigarette huh. I'm not reallyanti-cigarette. I don't smoke, but I don't really care what oher people do to there bodies. It's there life they will suffer the consiquences they recieve.

    And the other book with Lech Nyian, I can't use that can I. It wouldn't be original.

    you'll have a more interesting time making up a disease and playing the "new disease" aspect into your plot. Anything else and it could easily become the story of Michael J Fox or Ryan White...there is a disease out there where the bodies immune system attacks the body as if it were a disease, eventually killing it but not immeadiately (possibly prolonged by medicine). That could offer some good metaphorical content if you are interested....but yeah....

    A new disease would be interesting, but I actually wanted to use a real disease. Well thanks for what you've contributed already. Time to go do some research.
