My Achilles Heel

Hi i'm David and i suffer from this physically and mentally tormenting deformity. It sucks that i can't be like most people. I've read that this happens 1-400 and I just chuckle at how ridiculously unlucky I am. I have to much pride in other aspects of my life and I will never accept this bullshit reality that I've been given.

Nobody asked for life to deal us

With these bullshit hands we're dealt

We have to take these cards ourselves

And flip them, don't expect no help-Eminem

Im more than willing at least to suffer from a bruise or hard of breathing as long as it works

Damn 2 1/2 years...FML<br />
I heard it's a 1/2 year process argghhh this situation is really aggravating me it's like theirs no easy way out :/

haha, yeah really. powerball here i come!<br />
But yes, i've been wearing the brace for about 2 and a half years now (i was told 2 years with a brace that i wore for a consistant 12 hours a day would be enough). As someone who used to play sports and still does dance, it has few pluses. Because the brace presses down on your chest bone it can also stress out your lungs making simple tasks like walking up steps or carrying heavy ob<x>jects like labor. Unfortunately i've found that my brace also leaves a bruise on my chest-but maybe that will go away. If your not very active or if your a lazy *** then i guess it could be a good thing. But because your older you could have a quick maybe 2 or 3 year brace

wow yeah 1-1600 for you maybe try playing the lottery and luck will reverse itself. You mentioned how the brace makes things worse? Could you elaborate more on that please because I was actually looking forward to trying this instead of being cut open with surgery. Thanks.

So i just read this and honestly it was like everything i've ever thought about Pc. Especally being a girl with it which gave me a 1 - 4 chance times 1 - 400. I know how u feel when u say what bullshit luck we've been given and your quote from the song Beautiful made me smile because i love that song. Just wanted to tell you to keep going even though it sucks (and don't bother with the brace, trust me, it just makes it worse by my opinion).<br />
