Hello. My name is Hannah. I am 13 and in 7th grade. I have scoliosis and i wear a brace. When i was told that i had an s on my back i was totally shocked! My curve was 34 and a 19. When i was told i had to wear a brace i thought my life was over. Well it wasn't! Despite my differences from my other classmates i leraned to get used to the brace, along with everyone else. People began to understand why i wore the brace. If u ever think that u are different from everyone else because of the brace u are wrong! People still respect me as me and they love me as a person and not as a girl with scoliosis. In a few years from now i will know that i will not have to wear my brace anymore. I can't wait untill that day. But untill then i wear my brace. Don't feel like u have to wear baggy clothes so people can't see your brace as well! Just be u, wear what u want to wear! Don't let a silly brace make u feel different! Wearing a brace is all about attitude. If u let the brace make u sad then u will be sad. If u act like urself people will respect u more and want to be with u. Act as if u don't have anything wrong. I don't know what my future holds. I might have to get surgery, i just don't know.:) Remember there are thousands of other girls with ur problem u are not alone! If u want to contact me please e-mail me at cheerbootyshaker@yahoo.com i would be more than happy to talk with u. Thanks lots, **Hannah**

Hi, ellen. I'm rebecca. I hope that your surgary either went well, or is going to go well.:p i am wearing a brace, and without it my curve is 34degrees, but with it on, it's only 11deg. I am soooooo happy about that:D I understand how hard it was to get used to the "annoying piece of plastic".:( Well, I think that's it,
Rebecca

I am a parent of a infant getting a brace. I detected it when she was 5 months old. The doctors did not believe me and I forced one doctor to let me get x-rays of her back . She has severe scoliosis. She is now 9 months and will be getting a brace when she is one. Are they uncomfortable? I have heard about different brace types which are the most comfortable for a child? I know nothing about this and I am trying to get as much info. as I can before we meet with the specialist. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!

hi my name is lindsay and i recently got a brace, about two weeks ago. i thought it was the end of the world, but its really not. im 13 and the first thing that came to my mind was my friends and family. but nobody notices it and it will help my back. i have the brace that stays on all day and night... all it really is is a big plastic tank top that is sort of molded to your body. i find it not uncomfortable.. but it took some getting used to.
