When I was 6 years old I was an entire size smaller than my peers. I was slight
and short and frankly considered a runt. From that time till I was 13 I was
given growth hormones. I knew them as thyroid pills. From age 11 till 15 I was
considered euphemistically "stocky" or "husky" or any other term to imply a
little bit of an over weight situation. I was no couch potato though and video
games and pc's didn't exist so I played a lot outside. Between 10th and 11th
grade I grew 5 inches in height. I know this sounds very very strange if not
impossible but I have the skin stretch mark scars to prove it. I am now 200 lbs
and 6 feet 5 inches tall. I did not stop growing until age 22. I hope this helps
regarding the use of growth hormones.
