View Full Version : What helps you?

I am 14 years old, and I've had two spine fusions. Even two years later, certain characteristics and limitations about my body can sometimes get me depressed. When that happens, I try to find comfort with my loving family and remind myself of what I do have. What helps you get through when things get tough? ♥

Aww hun, two fusions already at fourteen? You are obviously one strong and brave girl. I take comfort in my family & friends when my limitations get me down. But take heart my dear, because you have endured something incredible that a lot of people will never have to go through. You are a courageous young woman! You should be very proud of yourself, and see that this sets you apart in a good way. I always find that when people I have known for only a short while, find out about my surgery & my scoliosis that they have a great admiration for my perseverance. I bet the people who meet you are touched by your perseverance in that same way. Keep your chin up doll! ;)
