Q

did she know about familial dysautonomia when she wrote of dying mitocondria? the suffering is so similar to her story about Charles Wallace. I read it as an 11 year old, befeore I knew i was afflicted with dysautonomia, and totally identified with how Charles felt and was disabled.

Her best friend, a physician, had shared an article from a medical journal about mitochondrial disease/disfunction, and the story grew from there. I don't know if at the time dysautonomia was named. I hope A Wind in the Door helped you, and that you're doing well.
