WombTwin syndrome - is it real?

The question that is being asked more and more....

Is there such a thing as wombtwin syndrome?

I read that losing a twin in the womb can cause all sorts of things, from a feeling of sadness, lack of trust, autism, sensitive emotions, starving yourself of food/sleep/relationships, and a variety of things. Is there really wombtwin syndrome?

  1. I had never heard of a possible autism link until now, but it does make sense. The food/starvation/anorexia has always been part of my background, the thought that I took vital nutrients from my twins has always been foremost in my mind. I have learned to live with it and don't blame myself for it anymore, but it took a very long time and I paid a high price.

  2. Hi Anonymous,
    Just to inform you: I am a wombtriplet survivor and have discovered that many aspects of my behavior could be interpreted as autism. I have no diagnose of it, but it is kind of striking. And interestingly most of that behavior is perfectly logical if the loss of my twins is added to it.
    On the blog question: I don't know if we should call it a syndrome, because this would mean we are ill, which I don't think we are. Besides it will give the others a greater excuse to call themselves "normal" and put us in a box with "abnormal" on it and I refuse to let that happen... Also, if the word "syndrome" is used, it then has to be defined and I think it's impossible with all the different stories and situations and consequences to ever write down a definition with absolute limits of a wombtwin. I wish the researchers good luck trying to do that. It is impossible.
