  1. I've heard of this…they did an episode of this on CSI years ago when William Peterson (Grissom) was still on the show….it is rare and real.

  2. Today i had a dream my left cerebral hemisphere is not mine belongs to my swallowed twin…. I woke up believing thats why sometimes people say i act different and i can't remember if it was me….. I guess sometimes my chimera twin takes over his left hemisphere and the conscious 😕😕😕😕😞

  3. I grew up an only child but I was a twin as well. My twin passed away in the early stages of pregnancy so we don’t know if it was a boy or girl. I wish my twin would have lived and been healthy that way we could have grown up together but I know one day I will see her or him again.

  4. Do you know DJayyy

    Pimps and whores like you they have.come and.gone. like a rock I am here. ROFL 🤣🤣🤣

    You think in the background you can hurt me? ROFL 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  5. My daughter has it but she has an s but its a ig S and my daughter is colored. Her doctors have asked her where she got it from.

  6. Reminds me of a boy in India whom they thought was pregnant at 5 or so. It turns out his undeveloped twin was a growth growing in him.

  7. So, she is her own twin. This now begs for the definition of "carpool" lane. She should be able to drive in them all the time. Not making fun of her condition…I think it is way more common that the public knows and I am grateful she has chosen to talk about it publicly. What really is the cause of all the autoimmune disease now that this information is out?

  8. Taylor i wrote you a song. Listen to Twin Baby by PAST REGRET #np on #SoundCloud
    https://soundcloud.com/chriscataldo1985/twin-baby

  9. People don't realize how hard it is when your sick and they can't find anything so they guess and just give more meds

  10. Special bc I think the other twin was a boy, she has male traits eg her long neck, raspy voice, sunken eye, Adam’s apple

  11. That moment at 3:25 is so Cringe when shes like "I am my own twin" and then pauses waiting for shocked gasps or something..but nobody reacts. Then Megyn tried to save her 😂

  12. In folks medicine, they would say that you ate your gestational twin sister… and that is that!

  13. Ok so could have thjs been like me? There is a lighter pigmentation on half of my body (one leg one arm one foot etc) could i have had a twin??

  14. Just another reason you should give birth at the hospital like a normal person questions may have been answered a lot sooner.

  15. WOW! I have had a line down my stomach my entire life, with one side darker too! I have had similar health issues also. Mind blown!

  16. This may be a real deal and all but it looks more like a publicity thing than anything ..at least she wasnt telling how her dad was on hero ine addict and a veitnam vet that likes to shoot at his kids when hes drunk..I think life has blessed her with opportunity ..and this does look like a publicity catch to get known..i mean i do believe she has 2 dnas..even though that in itself is sort of weird because normally a cell splits and the dna could be the same more frequently..but thats all she has to talk about..so ..big deal..my butt has a crack in it..but I managed to survive it anyway.

  17. Why can't we figure out how to make genes, bacteria, viruses work in a positive way in our bodies? When things work together, things work out! From micro to MACRO… symbiosis is the key! From the core of Earth to the clouds and beyond, we must learn to obtain perfect balance with everything around us. Working together with the Earth, as a living breathing entity, we can make our planet live, instead of barely thriving.

  18. I have the same birthmark except it’s through my entire torso including my arms and legs I’m gonna get tested soon but this video and this girl makes me more confident because she has the same birthmark I noticed it when I was 8 my mom noticed it when I was born but thought nothing of it

  19. Vaccines keep the kids sick and doctors in the money with these tests etc. www.thetruthaboutvacccines.com Cancer is curable but the pharma goons keep the cures from people to sell poisons. www.thetruthaboutcancer.com

  20. She needs to learn how to, you know, speak; without, you know, uh, the uh constant expression, you know. It's annoying.

  21. I went to school with a girl her face was the exact same way. one side of her face was darker than the other side

  22. Hi edagdwg thanks for sharing God bless you God gives gifts some time we don't understand why me everything God does is for a reason 🙏 changes things Linda j ☮️❤️ ❤️💯 💯💯 💯💯 💯

  23. 3:59– 4:42 Why do I constantly pay attention to the Asian lady behind her. she has some interesting reactions 😁😁

    Edit: Well I’m not alone , Asian lady is everywhere in the comments 🤣

  24. My birth mark is the shape of nz south island but only with more water and it's on my left arm I believe she is interested in the brain being half and half skin I am AA insurance AA eye of Egypt I stand as a F50% March:7 education is all here because of reconstruction helping the learner's by being with them and home being the right because it's just is
