nobody really understands the true reality behind scoliosis. it may just seem like no big deal, but to a person who suffers from it, it completely takes over your life. I look in the mirror everyday and see the uneven shoulders and crooked posture and want so desperately to stand up straight. I cant buy that really cute shirt at the mall because “it wont fit right.” I sit in school constantly fighting the urge to stand up and walk out of class because im in so much pain. The constant worry that everyone thinks im weird and deformed. Doctor appointments after doctor appointments. but after four years ive learned to keep my struggles to myself and fight for my life. everyones going through a battle you know nothing about, so make sure you aren’t so quick to judge.
