I have neglected my little blog and all of the Internet for that last three days. Today is the first day I have managed to sit at my computer for even a few minutes. So this is just a teeny update to let you all know that I am still here, I just can’t sit at the computer very long.
Just a word of advice to parents out there; When the school nurse tells you that your kid has scoliosis and then they say, “They will grow out of it” it’s not always true. I didn’t grow out of it, and then I joined the Army. They said during my physical that I had scoliosis and asked me if I had any symptoms. Well when I was younger I didn’t, so I told them no. However, I had never tested my back before that. Even in basic training my back proved to be much more of a problem than I ever imagined. I spent the majority of my time in the Army on a permanent profile (meaning I couldn’t do what everyone else had to do) and my back problems have dictated my life even when I fought tooth and nail to hide it.
Anyway, I have a crooked spine that went from a 16 degree curve to a 23 degree curve just in my time in the Army. That has led to bulged disks, which incapacitate me occasionally. This is one of those times.
I’ll be back soon –
