    My friend tested positive for a rare blood disease on a pregnancy genetics test. Her doctor told her to ignore it because it’s so rare it was probably a false positive. She did ancestry and 23 and me, and through ancestry found her mother’s biological family (her mom was adopted) and found out that women in her family line had a rare blood disease that killed them in their 40s. She also found out most of her mother’s family died young from colon cancer, in their 40s. Her mom had just passed away from it. She is now on medication for that blood disease and went to get her first colonoscopy in her twenties. Ancestry probably saved her from dying very young. It’s probably a one in a million story, but I’m so glad she did it. She has two young boys.

      There are also specifically medically focused DNA tests out there. You might have to get your doc to order it for you.

      I took one due to a family history of cancer. It was a great relief to learn that I do not have any of the currently known cancer markers. They kept my contact info so if new discoveries are made they will alert me. They did make sure to point out that the results by no means mean I can’t/won’t develop cancer anyhow – just that I’m not at exceptional risk genetically. That’s good news. I’ll take it.

      • Mle428 says:

        I think the point was that she had no idea that there was a family history and most docs won’t order a genetic test without cause, and if they do good luck getting it covered by insurance.

        I found some family members on Ancestry that nobody knew about through matching DNA. It was actually really healing for all of us. So, I guess I’m also a success story.

      • SomeChick says:

        Not knowing a family history is a good enough reason for that kind of test. I knew my mom died of cancer, so that was what I was worried about, but I have very little family medical history. It was a weight off my mind when my results came. Can’t hurt to ask.

    • Anners says:

      My mum’s adopted so I did Ancestry at a friend’s recommendation to find out more about my background. Through it we discovered my mum’s birth parents and she was able to meet her bio-mother and half sister. It was interesting to see where we come from genetically (mostly Irish and French Canadian), although of course that had little impact on her mostly British upbringing. And we were lucky – her birth family is pretty cool (albeit not as amazing as my grandparents).

    Sassy magazine was my go to!

    • SomeChick says:

      Yes, Team Sassy! I got to meet Margie (Marjorie Ingall) and she is every bit as smart, cool, and fun as you might expect!

      I’m old. In my era, Seventeen was my favorite.

      • kd says:

        I may be older. I remember when the magazine was “Calling All Girls.” There was whole jingle about the name change to “Young Miss.” Ack!!!

    Britney keeping it short, sweet and genuine. That’s the way to go!

  4. Watson says:

    I love Brit. She is so unproblematic and wholesome in a sea of crappy 2020 news.

  5. Helen says:

    Britney’s videos make me cringe. Yes she’s a positive person, but it’s always obvious that she’s not all there.

    • Noki says:

      Yeah,it seems that she has finally been ‘left alone’ even though she is still under the courts control,i dont think her dad and lawyers are breathing down her neck anymore. She seems so child like and out.of touch.

  6. DiegoInSF says:

    I appreciate the sentiment but she sounds manic and looks as if she woke up after a 5 day bender.

    • jbones says:

      Just woke up, or just returned from a sweaty day at the beach, put pretty dress on over shell necklace and bikini….and ACTION! She simply can’t GAF, and I like it.

      …also, never noticed slight gap in her front teeth, is this new?

      • ChillyWilly says:

        Yes, that gap is definitely new and really odd. I’m sorry but she looks and sounds tweaked out in this video. I’m worried for her.

  7. Purpeller says:

    As a genealogist, I use DNA tests all the time now to help people trace their ancestry but the ethnicity is just a guide and cannot be relied on yet. The real power is in who you match and what they share and what they know about their ancestry.

  8. Ellie says:

    Oh Britney no.
    Message great, delivery dreadful :|

  9. Mack says:

    Yeah, no…the gap in her teeth is definitely not new. She’s had it for at least the last 5-6 years; it’s just much more pronounced when she’s on a “break” and isn’t wearing her retainer as much. And can we please stop with the constant “I’m worried about her” faux concern? 🙄 It’s tired. This is just who she is. She’s goofy and awkward and weird. Let her be.
