    Exclamation Scoliosis Camp

    I think that scoliosis camp would be a great opportunity for all of us who have to deal with scoliosis, especially bracing. I know that our friends don't understand what we're going through, because no one can, unless they have had to deal with it. I know that I, like many other girls wearing a brace, often worry about how people are going to think, say, or act when they realize that we have scoliosis and wear a brace. I really hope that we can have a camp, because it would be a place where we could be ourselves and not have to worry about hiding our brace under piles of clothing or worrying about what others will think. A place where we can come together as scoli patients.. anyone agree?

    Leave Any Thoughts Below... =]

    That sounds like a great idea. I am no longer in a bracing program, but I would still find it benefitial to talk to others with my same problem and, perhaps, make suggestions on what to do to deal with common problems in a back brace.

    Rotem,

    No need to reply to the same thread over and over even if it is posted in several categories. Lauren was already asked to not post the same thing repeatedly. By replying to all of them, it only clogs up the site. Thanks.
