My Problem Wasn’t My Size. It Was My Scoliosis.

It was the first time in thirty years that I thought I truly acknowledged the mobility challenges associated with my Harrington Rods.I was twelve when I first started having significant back pain. My back hurt every day.

I would wake up at night with my muscles seizing and a sensation like my spine was jammed up.After complaining about it for a solid year, my mom finally took me to the doctor. He came in, took one look at me, and said in a disapproving tone, “Young lady, your back hurts because you’re fat.

Stop eating cookies and go get some exercise, and your back will be fine.”He didn’t even examine me, just made a diagnosis based on my size. I was devastated. I knew my pain was real, but no one else believed me.
