sometimes I like to google scoliosis, just see what the Internet throws at me, and it’s really fucking annoying. It’s all like ‘scoliosis doesn’t usually hurt’ ‘scoliosis only causes pain in adults aged 65 and over’
WHAT TYPE OF SCOLIOSIS ARE YOU STUDYING HERE AND WHERE DID YOU GET THIS BULLSHIT INFORMATION?
DID YOU ACTUALLY ASK PATIENTS WITH SCOLIOSIS OR DID YOU JUST MAKE YOUR OWN ASSUMPTIONS LIKE THE REST OF THE ENTIRE NON-SCOLIOSIS HUMAN RACE. God.
i’m not sure what to think. doctors/medical professionals sometimes don’t know how to fix things (back pain) and it’s annoying when they can’t admit to patients they don’t know something. for example, i went to the doctor for back pain several weeks ago and then i went to physical therapy. all they could tell me was ‘therapy might help’ and then they rushed through the stuff. i tried to ask questions but i don’t know anything either, i was hoping they were right… so then i’ve been doing the therapy about every other day but then suddenly last week my back was in more pain. it’s also annoying because i’m on a tight budget and don’t need to be going up to the doctor once a month when they could spend a little more time with me and we solve the issue in one visit.
i have scoliosis and mild pain and lately my bones keep creaking/popping. but i also work a pretty physical job at a daycare with toddlers that i have to pick up so maybe it’s just that….
i respect doctors and medical people but they are not always perfect.
society is going to fix the biggest problems before the smaller ones. not that many people have scoliosis + back pain. but at the same time health and pain is so much more important than nice houses and video games and movies. somehow society needs to correct this. especially american society. i feel like we could solve most of our health problems if we valued the right things more.
it’s kind of ridiculous that a person could work at a desk and earn 100k while another person does physical labor and earn 30k. it’s ridiculous that people earn millions of dollars for acting. it’s ridiculous that people will buy something and most of that money goes to an asshole ceo and not to the people who put the energy and time into making it.
btw, i typically try to buy only things i really need. i don’t buy ‘wants’ much at all. i don’t even buy new clothes anymore at all. my weakness is food at restaurants, though. if i had more money than i needed, i would donate it.
i’m not sure what the point of my rant is.
