    Wink Never Introduced Myself...

    Hi everyone,

    I'm sure many of you know me by now but I never formally introduced myself. I'm Adam, I'm going to be 17 in March, and I'm a HUGE WDW and Disney fan. I live in a small town in Dyer. I joined this site because I was looking for "Disney World Trivia" for my speech class last year and Viola! I'm here! Last year I had major back surgery to fix my very severe scoliosis. I was home for 2 months and that's how I got to spend so much time here! My one year DWT anniversary is coming up on Sunday.

    That's my story!

    Welcome and happy 1 year anniversary. I hope the surgery went well. Did you know that Liz Taylor suffered from scoliosis when she was a teen? Of course back then, I don't think they did surgery. So much for the good old days!
    mini-V What will you celebrate?

    I know they came a LONG way! Some odd years ago you had to be in an upper body cast...now we have internal stitching and tape on your back. I had that, it was kinda weird at first.

    I had to spend a year (1969 to 1970) in one of those upper body cast after my 3 surgeries (long story) for scoliosis. I missed about 3 weeks of 8th grade (they MADE me repeat it )

    I have a metal rod in my back. To this day whenever it is cold and damp out my back still hurts.

    I have 2 titanium rods in my back and 20 screws. I was in a brace for a while...(I HATED it). It was VERY uncomfortable and it didn't help at all. My scolisis was too severe.
