The Nervous Child

by Hector Charles Cameron

For years I have looked for the cause of crooked spine in myself and two sisters. I found this book quite by accident. It is the only book that takes into account all aspects of why a child cannot stand correctly. As I read it I realized that it is the only book or doctor that has ever addressed the problems so completely. I was that child. My spine continued to collapse into adulthood. It was surgically stabilized with rods, screws, and grafts at 41. The curves had reached 91 degrees kyphosis and 89 degrees lordosis. Though the surgery helped it did not stop the movement of my spine above and below the 15 fusions. I'm in need of more spine surgery, but where do you finally reach a spot that will stop the pulling on the spine.
As for being nervous, though I am intellectually okay, I will never be happy. It's a curse that cannot be fixed. I have all I could ever need in life, and still I'm miserable.
Drs. seem to be totally ignorant of ever having seen such appearance. My sisters and I have watched the general public and searched science and medicine for years and we still remain mysteries.
If you have any questions about the spine, this is a great work; though Drs. seem to be totally surprised that such information even exists.
