Hello to everyone,
I am currently researching an article I'm doing for a writing class on the emotional/psychological impact of scoliosis diagnosis, esp. in adolescents. As you can see from my signature, I am 6 years successfully post-op and would not/could not have done this without the support and resources from NSF and the forum. When I was diagnosed as a teenager back in the early 70's, there was nothing and it was a horrible experience for my family and me. Anyway, I would love to hear from teenagers or parents who have been helped by connecting with other families on this journey. This article is not necessarily for publication although I'm hoping it may be at some point. I appreciate any input and please feel free to message me if you'd prefer to chat via email. Thank you!
