How Did I Get So Lucky?

Somehow I got the'lucky'card in the health department. Somewhere in my genes I ended up with the crapshoot of everything. I do know I have my mother's bad back and Rheumatoid Arthritis but I also got my father's hair (which is still not completely gray at 89). But the rest of it, I have no idea.So I always look for hints of how I could have gotten these lovely ailments. Then find an article that asks 'Can Trauma Cause Fibromyalgia?' But I am not so sure I understand how it would help me. They list:" The traumatic experiences that are usually correlated with fibromyalgia are the following:Certain types of viruses like Hepatitis C and HIVChildhood separation from parents that lasts more than six months.Emotional TraumaLiving through a war "I have not had Hep C or HIV. I was not separated from my parents for more than six months as a child. I have not personally lived through a war. However maybe emotional trauma could be from the PTSD of cancer twice could be a cause?Maybe I am clutching at straws here, as I often do, but wouldn't it be nice to know how I got so lucky. Its a lot of frustration. And aggravation.
