For Everyone You
Meet Is Fighting
A Hard Battle
I Got My
You Will Ever Meet
These three quotes I carry with me and try to keep close to me in the way I interact with others, and how I look at the world. They help me to keep an open mind, but also to stand up for myself. In the end all our differences can unite us, if we want to learn from each other and make the world a better place.
I know kind of sappy. But I like to set my goals high, so I can keep my focus on the bigger picture while being swallowed by life's details.
Besides I don't like to define myself by age, education or work. Especially since when I was suffering from chronic pain for 2 years, all these things were non-existent. So would I be no one without these things? No. I am still me. I had to define myself at my deepest core.
My Scoliosis Journey
I was diagnosed with scoliosis at of 14 years old. Which is relatively late for discovering scoliosis. Since they thought I'd might still grow I was measured a brace which I wore for a year till I was 16 years old. Since the discovery of my curve it never really progressed or decreased. Of course it is always hard to say whether the brace made a difference or not. At the time I was also dancing a lot and maintained a strong body.
My scoliosis is one major curve of about 47 degrees Cobb angle. The apex of my curve is at T9. My curve is mostly right thoracic slightly moving into my lumbar spine and still twisting to the right in my lumbar spine, while also having a little compensatory curve around 27 degrees Cobb angle. But is it still?
