Can’t believe we are in June already. With everything happening around us, it seems like time…days….and months are just running together.

Scoliosis awareness month is here!

I recently saw Marvel’s Dr. Strange and I probably didn’t take the movie as others would. While some might thing it is just your typical Superhero movie, it really wasn’t. At least for me. This post does contain a few *spoilers* The whole movie was different. Not your typical beginning, he didn’t start with Superhero strength, or Superhero powers. He was a regular man … Continue reading Dr. Strange I am.

Life is tough, and there are constant obstacles that block our paths. But the outcome is all in how you see things. Having Scoliosis makes things much harder for me but I choose to see things from a different perspective. It’s much easier to cry all day, stay in bed, and live off of medications. But that is NOT the life I want, nor have. … Continue reading From a different perspective
