My Story is a Bony Stigma
Hello, I was born in Istanbul on 03.09.1993. My story starts with a broken arm. When my parents washed me as a 15-day-old baby, they saw me crying hysterically and took me to the hospital. They noticed that my bones were broken, and after a short time we noticed problems in my stomach. I was diagnosed with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (glass bones) Type 1.5.
I came out of the surprise egg
I started my disabled life at age 10. I have never seen my disease as a negatitve, which is said to be the effect of genetic factors. I fought with my sensitive bones until the age of 14. And hospital home life started 3 years later. According to the words of my doctor, my adolescent bones could be strengthened. I was fortunate and thankful, but of course I had 2 hip surgeries at the age of 20 years old because I had scoliosis. I was quite careful for 1.5 years when I returned from the surgery. By the beginning of the summer of 2016 I fell from my wheelchair and broke my spine and had surgery.
I do not spend my life in an anxious state I must look and stay strong in my body. It gives me great purposes that I can be my best in every way. And I will not let go of my stilettos if I fall!
