My Scoliosis story
I have emailed Scope to see if they would share this on the main part of their website and i thought i would share it on here. Have you heard of Scoliosis? Below is my Scoliosis story.
My name is Sarah and i am 34 years old. I was born with Scoliosis, which is a curve of the spine. I wore a corset brace for a while, when I was at school. After a while I didn't need to wear it anymore. Years a go, a doctor said it would be too dangerous for me to have surgery so I didn't have it. I am short in stature for my age because of Scoliosis. I can walk but when I go out I use a wheelchair (one that someone pushes me in) because I get tired walking. Every 4 or 8 months, (depends if my results are good) I have lung function appointments at a hospital. I live on my own, but i have carers two days a week for 4 hours each day.
i have a Facebook disability blog called See the person, not just the condition/disability https://www.facebook.com/mescoliosisdisability/?
