Scoliosis:  My Story
Hello visitor, and welcome to my pages devoted to the spinal disease known as Scoliosis. :-)
If you want to read my story in full, from the first diagnosis up to the present, then start from
the Medical History links and work your way down the main page.
I've lived with this since the age of 12, and have never put down my experiences on paper, much
less online. This is going  to be a challenge for me, sharing my story like this, but I do it it in the
sincere hope that it will help someone else out there who is living with Scoliosis.
Know that you are not alone!

5/14/2000:  I graduated from university today! Woo-hoo!!!
Bachelor of Arts with Honours in French, thank you very much!

Wow, I can't believe she's finally graduating from university!

Dr. Brown showing his surprise at me actually graduating. Just kidding!
If you see this, thank you for coming, it meant alot to me :-)

June, 2002 - This is just an update on my personal life. Some of you are under the impression that I am now happy with my fiancee, Chris. In fact, I am single again. I have lost Chris forever. When we returned from France, he started having affairs again and fell for one of them. He chose one of them over me. We would have been married this month. I am now alone again... and seeing a psychologist for depression. I started taking Celexa 3 weeks ago. I know I'm a survivor, but right now things seem impossible. I'm supposed to start my Masters degree in a few months, been accepted at the University of Laval in Quebec City (yes that involves moving away for a while). There's got to be someone out there for me!
