Mostly. I know both sides of my family have numerous blood pressure/heart problems (between my sisters and I, so far I'm the only one who doesn't have heart issues), plus the occasional cancer/diabetes/Crohn' s/etc.

My mom was adopted and never found her biological parents so there's a lot I don't know, unfortunately.

A couple years ago, my dad's mom filled in my aunt and me about our family history. It was downright scary and informative.

I wish I did. Unfortunately, I don't have contact with my biological father so I can't figure out what I might need to look out for :'(

I thought I did. Then I made my mom go with me to the Dr.s and I made her fill out the paper work. So many things I didn't know!

I mainly only know my mom's side of the medical history. I have had NO contact with my biological side of the family my whole life.
