It used to bother me that when I looked in the mirror and I was standing straight, I was lopsided. I couldn’t quite get over that.
Now it bothers me that I live with scoliosis and that I’ve been living with it since the age of 25, but I only found out less than a year ago. I remember going to the consultation with my father, but because the conversation wasn’t directed at me, it’s not something I remember fully.
It bothers me more that when I wear tight close fitting clothes my scoliosis looks worse than when I wear loose fitting clothes and am concerned that as I age it may get worse, although I’ve been told it is mild scoliosis. I’m more annoyed that it relates to cerebral palsy and I’ve had to stumble across both.
But the biggest thing that bothers me is the person who could have helped me come to terms with it all, didn’t want to know; even though I later learned out why.
