Lessons from Back Trouble
Two or three years ago I had lots of problems. My back and stomach hurt, and it was kind of hard to breath. We went to a couple doctors. The first time was kind of non-informative. Well, after a while, we figured out what was wrong. I had scoliosis. Scoliosis is a spinal issue where your spine is curved. Mine was very bad, and I had to wear a back brace to get my spine to straighten. I wear one until this day. A while ago I had an appointment. I was nervous. But you know what? My curve went down by about 1 degree on part of my spine, and 2 degrees on the other! The things I’ve learned is, one: I need to keep working at it, so I will get better. Two: God is always there.
