I’m feeling defeated. I’m frustrated. I have scoliosis. I was diagnosed with it when I was in middle school. It’s just now recently started to really bug me. Last time this happened I went to physical therapy and it helped SO MUCH! I figured I could do this again and all would be well. So, I went to my doctor, got a referral, and off to PT I went. Well, apparently I had the awesome pleasure of being seen by a complete jackass who doesn’t know anything about scoliosis or how to treat it. In fact, that physical therapist made it worse and I had to be put on muscle relaxers. Not cool! That shit knocks me out cold! My regular doctor, who is awesome by the way, decided seeing a specialist was probably the best bet. I completely agree with her! We took new x-rays and off to the specialist I went. Yesterday was my appointment and I didn’t leave feeling too hopeful. I know it’s just me. I’ve avoided being seen because I didn’t want to hear my curve had gotten worse. Sure enough, it did. The specialist read the x-rays and my curve is now at 40 degrees. This is the worse it’s ever been. Funny how the doctor I saw when I was a kid told me once I was done growing it wouldn’t get any worse. Guess he was a jackass too. So, all of this running around going from one doctor to the next and hearing that my curve is worse, is leaving me feeling defeated. It’s a hard pill to swallow.
