Hi! My name is Jullianne. And I’m just going to give you all a little backstory on why I am doing this.
So I was a normal kid up until my 7th grade. Doing what every normal kids do. Before I finished my 6th grade, I already had a few friends come up to me and say I walk kind of weird.To which I ignored since I didn’t really feel like I did. I live alone with my father that time and we barely see each other since he had a night shift work so: every morning I was at school, he was asleep and every night I was at home, he was at work.
The surprise came when I traveled to my grandparents house and they all said that I have scoliosis. And I swear I didn’t notice it until I bend and stared at my back in the mirror. People said since it wasn’t that severe yet I should have it massage, and so I did. After a year and a half we decided to stop because the hump in my back became noticeably bigger. After that I decided that since it wasn’t really hindering me I should just live with it and accept it. But oh I was wrong! I’m 18 now and turning 19 this 7th of June and I now have back, neck and hip pain. The doctor who checked on me said he believes my curve is around 130 degrees now and will still continue to progress. I stop attending school after I finish my Junior High because it was just really painful. I’m now really worried for my future because I haven’t even gone to Senior High, if given the chance for a surgery I would like to go back to school and continue my life.
I need to go a series of tests before surgery and these tests cost so much. I’m not registered in any healthcare and don’t have insurance.
Every birthday I had these past few years I always wish for a surgery, but now I realized I have to do my part too! 😅So this year for my coming birthday again, I’d like to think I did my best to help myself by spreading the word to the people who can possibly help me.🙂
I would like to ask for help. Any kind will do. Even just sharing this!🙂
Thank you very much! God bless! 😊
