Sometimes , God breaks our spirit to save our soul.
Sometimes , He breaks our heart to make us whole.
Sometimes , He sends us pain so we can be stronger.
Sometimes , He sends us failure so we can be humble.
Sometimes , He sends us illness so we can take better care of our selves.
Sometimes , He takes everything away from us so we can learn the value of everything we have.

thats ok wid the height,,,usually thals dont hav much heights bcuz of the reason that iron interferes in this area ...and those thal wid more height often hav themselves damaged by iron somewhere else ,, i ws "ONLY" damaged in growth and hight by iron ... mine too is 5.1 ........ weight keeps on changing 44-46  ....

actual thing is the height of ur character... not the apparent height .
Reach upto the level that 6" ppl envies ... b more energetic stamina confidence self esteem knowledge and acheivements  .. after which ppl would look upon u ...as a gr8 man .

Waleed, I believe you are right.
God made up for the thal by giving us all....
Excellent strength in our selves (ego), Stubborn ( won't take no) :bat, self accomplishments, warm characters and just wonderful people to know and love :grin
I could go on..... but we all know what great people we are. :flirty

Well I am a tiny 5ft and weighing in at 55kgs...  :rotfl

But what I lack in height is I make up for the loudness.... :rotfl

I am a little pocket rocket...hahahahaha

My voice makes up for my height...

Cheriann we are all what you said and more!!!!

Well I started treatment young, but it has to do with your hereditary too...My family isnt that tall either...well my mother and father arent that tall, I am taller than my mother and alittle shorter than my father...My sister is the tallest in my family..

Take care all...

Umair, it's about genes and your locality.

A similar topic was on another forum and one of their Dutch member is about 6 or 7 feet high. Don't you see the hockey matches. Our players look like kids in front of them.

yeah buddy :
i know that .. but it is for the people who feell that they r  not as tall as  a normal person ... i started this thread to make a thread in which they can asses that is not bcoze of thalasemia ....
and they can feel that they are as tall as normaly other thals r ...

in the other hand i want to say that ... as Iron effect's on the growth it could also  effect on ur height ... in my relatives and cousin they r about around  5.10 ......
i m only 5 feet there is a big diffrence ... it doesn't matter for me ..but it was a general question  to the thal's view ...

Just to clarify this.. I DONT FEEL INFERIOR that I am short... I love my height infact...

As Sajid has mentioned before..It does have to do with genes... But the local part doesnt really count, cause I have relatives that are 6ft tall and they are in australia nd greece....

I also know of alot of Thal Major patients who are tall and their parents who are shorter than they are...

Thank you..
