When I first found out I had scoliosis, one of my biggest concerns was how much it was going to affect my day to day life. I learned a great deal about myself when I started out in my brace. I found out I am tougher than I ever could have imagined, that a positive outlook can help you get through a difficult day, and to never take the little things in life for granted. The message I would like to give to others dealing with scoliosis would be that you are not alone and there are other people who understand what you deal with on a daily basis. Those same people are more than willing to listen to your good days and bad days, so reach out to them. I hope that my story inspires others to think that if I can do this so can they.
