I was the first person in my family to be diagnosed with hereditary haemochromatosis. In fact, I was the first person that I knew to be diagnosed with haemochromatosis. When I was diagnosed, I felt isolated and alone, much like the little girl in this picture.

It later transpired that my mother and brother also had hereditary haemochromatosis. Now, we all receive appropriate treatment and care but at the time, it was an isolating experience.
