Height
A topic spurred by the discussion started in the "I'm Back" thread. Moved/split here so discussion can continue.

Did doctors tell you that you'd actually be taller? Did anyone do anything to either stunt or increase your height?

Discuss your height and how tall you wish you were here! (Please include both metric and American measurements as we've got members from various countries here!)

How tall are you? I'm a mere 5'3" and have decided that even though I am short, I am little and mighty! <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->

"Little and mighty" is pretty much the way I try seeing my being short (like... shorter than you).

Stupid medications have stunted my growth forever, and now I'm stuck being shorter than I was supposed to.

For the first few years (ages 7 to 10) I took Ritalin, then I was switched to a rather high dose of Concerta (ages 11 to 18). I started drinking soda and coffee at an early age, so the caffeine didn't help any, either.

That's an urban myth.
Caffeine has no effect on growth.

Well, whatever it was, I'm a good three inches shorter than I'm supposed to be. <!-- s:| --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_neutral.gif" alt=":|" title="Neutral" /><!-- s:| -->

My pediatrician told me I would only grow to be 5' and I've passed that, even if it was only by 3". So they really can only guess at what height you'll end up at.

They really shouldn't tell kids those things, then....man, he got my hopes up for years only to crush them. Tell the parents, let the kids live in their little fantasy worlds until puberty. <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

Re: the "i'm back" thread
. . . why would they tell anyone such a thing anyway?

I mean the best they can really say is "If you are this height at age whatever, then by the time you're an adult you'll likely be between these two heights" (or something along those lines).

But, if it's really a problem and you'd like to be taller, you can always have your femurs broken and put in cages that pull them apart for a few months - that might add an inch or so <!-- sWink --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- sWink -->
