Hello everybody. I have found this forum and i'm going to be posting a little bit to discuss scoliosis and disability but I will not ramble about that here.
I am 18, Trying to get a job, my GED, and eventual therapy. I come from a poor household of myself and my disabled father. I have been struggling for very long with chronic pain and mobility issues post-scoliosis surgeries as well as mental illness. I have some problems reading and processing language as well so I apologize for any confusion and  slow reply times

    hello rabbit002 !
    our lives are not just only...chronic pain.
    we are not just our chronic pain.

    we are people of value, no matter our struggles....health or otherwise.
    we all have other issues in our life that we need to deal with, also....but dealing with life while in pain complicates even the littlest thing.
    that has been my experience anyway.

    chronic pain can complicate, or upset, much of our lives.
    for ex...i have depression and anxiety that took me awhile to get an understanding about.
    i have some  relationships that have become strained.

    i also have cognitive issues...difficulties understanding the meaning of words or difficult to access the correct word to use to express myself.
    all this to say, you are not alone! ...and i hope that helps you somewhat.

    i think you will find that the members on this site are very encouraging and supportive...whatever issue is facing us or taking up most of our energy.
    as you look over the forums, you will see a variety of issues of life.
