So you think you have a few problems. Who doesn't? I mean join the party. No matter what problems you have there is always someone who has more. Remember the phrase, "I complained about having no shoes until I met a man with no feet."? Progeria is a specific type of progeroid syndrome, also known as Hutchinson-Gilford syndrome. Progeroid syndromes are a group of diseases that cause victims to age faster than usual, leading to them appearing older than they are. Patients born with progeria typically live to an age of mid-teens to early twenties. So they don't have a long life span. Would you even consider dating someone with this syndrome? I imagine it would be a short relationship.
