My Scoliosis story

Scoliosis

Sarah Jackson Bennett

My life with scoliosis

My name is Sarah and I am 34 years old. I live in the UK. Scoliosis is a curve of the spine. I was born with it. I wore a corset brace for a while, when I was at school. After a while I didn't need to wear it anymore. Years ago a doctor said it would be too dangerous for me to have surgery so I didn't have it. I am short in stature for my age because of Scoliosis. I can walk but when I go out I use a wheelchair (one that someone pushes me in) because I get tired from walking. I have lung function appointments every 4 or 8 months (depends if my results are good). My next appointment is in December because my results at my appointment in April were good. I live on my own and cope quite well, but I have carers two days a week for 4 hours each day. I have a Facebook disability blog called "See the person, not just the condition/disability." https://www.facebook.com/mescoliosisdisability/. My Instagram is @sarahsscoliosisjourneyblog   I also have a blog https://sarahandscoliosis.blogspot.com  and my Twitter is @blogsarahj
