#DidYouKnow #FACTS This chart below shows the “WALKING ABILITY & LUMBAR LEVEL Stats(which is the location of the opening on your spine) of people born with Spina Bifida.
FOR ME…I’m L-3 to L-4. #iWalk and #iRoLL #Blessed This chart “kinda” describes my ability. I kinda sorta like ummm… hmmmm… ditched my “leg braces” after becoming an Adult. (my choice) 🤷🏾‍♀️
I would NOT recommend this IF you’re in your “wonder years” -aka- “a child”. Do what your docs/therapists/Parents say until further suggestions. 😉 However show them what you CAN DO! #RockYourABILITIES 😉
FOR ME… I “probably” could walk a little better and longer. However, I’m mentally comfortable with my abilities. Could I improve? Yes.. I guess. I do “practice” walking, standing and stretching so my body doesn’t tighten on me. (AGAIN…this is all “my choice”) I still get to where I wanna go or need to be. 😉 I got a #Need4Speed 😁 #MyLifeMyReality #MyPurpleBlazeLife 💜 #ImperfectlyPerfect 💪🏾 #TeamTWILA #BornSpinaBifidaSTRONG💪🏾 #365247Life #SpinaBifidaAwarenessMonth
