X is for X Chromosome
The X chromosome is one of the chromosomes that determines the sex of a person. XX is female and XY is male. I have heard about this all my life and even have two that I have been carrying around for over 50 years. Little did I know that this little microscopic chromosome would have such an impact on my life. The about picture is a "normal" X chromosome. The one below is not "normal" My x chromosome and my son's X chromosome looks like this. This little abnormality has really caused a lot of problems but has also brought joy and great learning to me.
