A Battle Against Scoliosis

Scoliosis is quite common I think most especially in girls. Once left untreated can cause devastating effects on one’s self esteem and confidence.

I remember when I was only 16 years old. I applied for a summer job. I almost made it however at the end I was denied due to my scoliosis problem. I got so sad after that incident. I decided to conduct my own research regarding it. I’ve read good stuffs and more bad stuffs. I got scared that I might have all the said complications like uneven shoulder, a noticeable hump at the back, uneven waistline and the list goes on and on. I went through 20 different kinds of therapy just to lessen or even try and stop the progress. I really wasn’t sure that it worked at all.

Now after 11 years I have finally gained enough strength to go through an operation for my back. Some say that it’s too late for that. I just shrug and tell them that it’s better late than never.
