I was diagnosed with Shuermann's Disease when I was 14 years old officially and spent the next 4 years in braces (including the Milwakee Brace which was pure torture) I spent my day 23 hours a day in braces.

I have only heard of a few people who have been diagnosed and I think that is why it has made it so hard to deal with the illness. thank you for listening!
