    I am in pain all day every day

    and I feel like it's getting worse. My symptoms started around 13 and went on nearly a decade before I was diagnosed. Sometimes I can't even walk. My hands have been going numb for hours at a time every morning when I wake up and from what I understand this is most likely from a...

    In 5th grade I started to notice

    that my back was begging to look like a hump like shape. My mom said it was cause of the way I stood and I needed to stand up straighter and not always slouch. But when we went for my 6th grade physical they told me I had Scheuermann's Kyphosis. At first it didn't bother me much...

    I can only image what trauma my body went through as I had my surgery. It must have been quite the sight, my bone and sinew exposed for all the world to see. The fibers of my muscles being torn and every last nerve I had being ripped into oblivion as I lay there, as helpless as I...

    My Life So Far

    Well, I'm 15 and was diagnosed with this on August 1 this year. I've become depressed and I was told that me walking is a miracle. I've been trying to look for answers to my questions and I've been looking for a support group. Hopefully this one is a good one.
