Thank you for the honest post on scoliosis. I have scoliosis, too. My spine is shaped like an "s." I had to wear a brace when I was in 7th grade, even to school. I tried to hide it by losing weight to the point that it was unhealthy and wearing big sweatshirts to cover it up. It made me very self conscious and to this day I am self conscious about it and envious of girls with pretty, straight backs. A friend recently asked me what was wrong with me that I was walking to one side, I was embarrassed but wish I would have told him I have scoliosis and that's why because many people like him are not aware. Which is why I am thanking you for making others aware with your post.
I can’t believe I never replied to this. The poster probably won’t see it but I just wanted to say you’re welcome. Everyone is imperfect, so there is always comfort in knowing that. Stay strong! I’m sure you are so beautiful. Courage is hard to gain when it’s not already there, but you shouldn’t be embarassed. If anything people will think it’s interesting! I know it’s not exactly fun being crooked, though.
I wish you lived near me so you could be a part of my photo project.
