So, I spend a lot of time on this page talking about my RSD/CRPS issues as that's the big one I'm going through at the moment, but it's hard to forget that almost 3 years ago now I had 3 surgeries for scoliosis and have a wonderful scar and 18 titanium screws and rods from T1 to T12. I am not completely straight still, but it's much better! My curve went from about 72Β° to around 18Β°. This is an edit of my back, with a peek into what my spine actually looks like. And you can see my back curve along with the small twists that are still in the there. I still experience back pain. I still get the occasionally muscle spasm. My shoulder blades ache constantly. And I'm in a good deal of pain from the scoliosis as well as the RSD. It's an amazing thing, really! #rsdwarrior #scoliosis #spinalfushion #pain #crps #chronicpain #disorders #edit #spine #xrays #sickofbeingsick #dealingwithit #mybackisweird #backpain #ifeel80yearsold #fused #curves #somuchhurt #scoliosiswarrior

Today marks exactly 2 years since my first operation... I remember being so afraid.. I didn't want surgery.. It was so painful. I was In the hospital for 6 days! Recovery was difficult.. I never imagined that I would be living with chronic pain 2 years later. I was an angry kid why me? Why did I have to have surgery? I've lived with scoliosis since I was 6 months old.. I didn't even let my mom take pictures I was so embarrassed and afraid! But I have grown and changed so much since then! I have learned to embrace my scoliosis, I have learned how to handle pain.. I have learned how to be happy! I am a better person because of my scoliosis... I have had 3 more surgeries in these short 2 years.. My journey isn't even close to over! But I am thankful! I was given scoliosis for a reason and I wouldn't change my life for anything! Today is a special day for me.. It marks 2 years since my 1st of 4 surgeries!❀️ _________________________________ (This picture was taken 5 months post op.. )❀️ #scoliosis #scoliosissurgery #spinesurgery #backsurgery #bad #back #curvy #curved #crooked #hospital #pain #rough #tough #hard #painful #surgery #scar #beautiful #battlescar #backbrace #brace #scoliosisstory #fusion #spinalfusion #recovery

Have you set goals only to feel defeated? Many times we give up one step before achieving that goal. When I first attempted #P90X, I bought a pull up bar and had some weights and was ready to go. I was still fairly sick with Lupus SLE and my back ached because I have #scoliosis. But I was determined to get in shape and healthy, because I was sick of being sick. I did one workout from the program called Plyometrics. I don't know what the hell I was thinking, because I thought I was going to die after that. After that I quit. Fast forward to when @rjohnbernales and I started dating. He had finished a round or two of P90X and had good results. This inspired me to give it another try. I did a few of the workouts.... Then quit because "it was just too hard". Excuse after excuse I kept giving. One day R'john tells me him and his friends were going to do some workout called Insanity. I had no idea what that was, but I thought okay I'll "try" it out. That "try" became an addiction. I think what really kept me motivated to keep going, was the fact that we were all in the same boat, keeping each other accountable. If it wasn't for that attempt, that try... Well I would have never come this far. Lupus is in remission and medication doses keep going down and I've never been stronger than today. So the next time you say to yourself that you can't do something, just try. You might just surprise yourself. #motivated #accounability #teamchnarjohn #lupus #fitnessjourney #fitcouple #fitjunkie #fitspiration #inspire #insanity #beachbody

hi_imaniiam : @scoliosis_life123 Im going to have surgry but I heard that most people are sick after is there any tips or medicane I could take so I dont get sick?
scoliosis_life123 : Honestly I only threw up once and that was because I took the morphine I think that's how you spell it haha but I took it on a empty stomach so it made me sick, but I just ate a few hours after surgery like jello and I was fine! 😊 I wouldn't be worried about getting sick if you eat you should be fine, it is just some medicines can bother your stomach if you haven't ate anything for awhile, at least that was how it was with me. 😊 @hi_imaniiam
hi_imaniiam : Ok thanks for the tipπŸ˜‰ one thing less to stress about now😊

In love with this little poemβ™₯ its so frustrating when no one around you can understand how you feel. Even my mom, the person who knows me the best, doesn't see how im really feeling. Just because I do things with a smile on my face doesn't mean im not in constant pain. I always have pain its just some days im better at hiding it... I never did an update from my PT appointment so: **basically my physical therapist says I have stopped making progress these past few weeks. He said I have improved since my first visit as far as my neck and hips go but for my back basically we have hit a wall. Nothing is working for the pain and no one can figure out what is causing it. I am getting my final evaluation on Monday and he will decide if I should stop or continue PT...feeling a bit defeated but I know things will work out. One day. β™₯ #scoliosis #kyphosis #spinalfuison #rodremoval #chronicpain #nofearjustfaith #justkeepsmiling #hope
