Hello everyone,

My friend Sajid told me about this great resource for Thal and when i visited this website as a guest, I immediately decided tp become a member because i dont wanted to lose this opportunity to talk to other "Thalmates" and learn from their experiences and tell them mine.

About me hmmm, I am Tarq,24,Male,Karachi Pakistan. born with Thal Major. I am a computer science graduate and by profession a Software Engineer. I started my professional life three years ago and beleive me these three years i have gained much of knowledge and more than that confidence which i lacked when i was a teen. When i got out in the field, I found what I am worth and what special skills that God has given me which other people don't have. In my normal routine, i am a healthy person by the Grace of God, who just needs a refuel every 18 days (my Tranx).

The only major health issue that i have suffered is Hypocalcemia which most of you know, is Calcium defficiency, due to which I am on regular calcium supplement for 10 years now. Despite this problem, no major disasters in my life except that like any other person i have suffered from diseases like Malaria, Typhoid, Jaundice etc.

I have one elder brother Hamza ,27 who is also Thal Major. He si also graduate and employed and almost the same story as me. What else hmm...........

Well looking forward for your comments,

Regards,

Tariq.

Hi Tariq,

Is your brother Hamza the same Hamza I've known for a few years? I first knew him through our MSN site and also on MSN messenger.
Andy

All we are saying is give thals a chance.

Wel-Come Tariq to the forums. looking forward to your postings....!
My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.

Hi Tariq,

Welcome to the site  :hithere Congrats on dealing beautifully with your health and profession. I like the phrase 'refueling'. Yeah we all need petrol aka transX every now and then.

Good to have you with us.

Regards,
Namitha
