Hello everyone, I need any help you can provide. The thing is im 22 yo but my body and my face changing a way slower then normal and i`m in desperation, living this life is not for me, i would rather die then live in child`s body. Here`s something that may help with diagnosis, i`m taking testosterone right now, but it seems like T doesn`t work to me, i feel literally nothing. If you know what doctor can help me or what tests i should do, maybe some genetic disorder tests or whatever. I`m working with psychologist too, but its not enough, i want to try normal life, so if you know something that may help - let me know please. Thank you a lot for understanding.

Are you diagnosed with a Fabry Disease?
The disease can cause delayed puberty and a short stature that makes patients look younger than they actually are, according to a study published in The Lancet.

Have you seen a medical doctor about this? What do they say?

He gets testosterone treatment. So, it's safe to assume that he saw a doctor.
However, I am unclear what's the diagnosis, but we probably will never know...

I think you are overthinking your condition, Looking younger than you actually are shouldnt be a negative in life but a positive, what are your main problems with looking young?
As an aside one of my daughters is 24 yrs old and doesnt look a day over 12,every one loves her because she is so cute,i think the condition has helped her to get some pretty good jobs.

Well, no, just because someone takes testosterone doesn't mean they got it from a doctor. OP doesn't know what kind of doctor they should see (which I assume would have been told to them had they seen any sort of doctor about this), and I'm not even clear from their post if they have an actual medical disorder or are simply one of those people who looks very young for their age.

Because people who are adults want to be treated like adults rather than children? I don't want people to think I'm "cute," I want them to think I'm mature, capable, and competent, and take me seriously, especially as a female in a world where being female makes this harder to achieve to begin with. Because it gets old having survey-takers ask "are you 18 yet?" ("Um, yes, I'm almost 30, actually") and other people wonder what grade you're in when you graduated college years ago and bartenders/store clerks scrutinize your ID (and demand to see it suspiciously as if you're lying when they ask how old you are and you tell them), feeling like people may think your significant other is a pedophile?

If your daughter is getting "pretty good jobs" solely because she's "so cute," there is something wrong with these employers. And I would think it would bring her more satisfaction to have gotten a job because she has the skills and education they require, instead. (And customers/clients of most businesses would tell you that their confidence is not inspired by having their problems solved by someone who looks like a child. Young people, and people who look young, are discouraged by this fact on a regular basis.)

Sure, it might be great to look 20 when you're 40 (or not, in some cases), but nobody in their 20s who's already trying to come to terms with being an adult wants to look like, and have people think, they're of an age when they still might have some of their baby teeth.

It doesnt take long for employers to realize she is a computer genius and her 6 figure salaries are comensurate with her abilities.

Since OP mentioned testosterone, I'm assuming he is a male. No male in his 20's wants to look like a preteen.

I don't know...several things OP has said makes me think he's NOT under a doctor's care. Sure, he's getting testosterone...but at least here in the midwest, there's tons of testosterone clinics that will give you a pill or a shot, and insurance pays for it, and boom, that's it.


It ALMOST sounds like he gets it from a friend or something. WE'RE supposed to diagnose? And he says he literally feels no different...wouldn't blood work determine if anything is working or not? Wouldn't that be part of being under a doctor's care?


And wouldn't he need an endocrine specialist?

He may be thinking he's getting testosterone but could be taking one of those "as advertised on TV" supplements that may or may not have much, if any, actual testosterone.


I really don't get the impression that he's seeing a doctor, never less a specialist, which is what he needs.
