Meet Ruby
Hong Kong

我是在香港長大的Ruby。在我中學時期,我確診患上脊椎側彎,我曾經嘗試不同的方法去改善問題,可惜沒有任何一個方法能改善我的情況。更不幸的是,我的病情惡化了,我的彎曲度數已經到達80度。所以我開始有做手術的念頭,在2017年,我終於完成了脊骨融合手術,幸運地一切順利。

在過往的年頭,我認為自己一直都是很孤獨和無助地獨自與脊椎側彎這個病奮鬥著,因為我根本沒有任何朋友跟我一樣有相同情況。一般在香港患上脊椎側彎的人都不願意分享這方面的事情,因他們較害羞和會為此疾病而感到羞恥,所以很合理地香港是沒有任何脊椎側彎的組織,而我亦曾經被同學取笑,不過我知道這一切都是源於他們對脊椎側彎的了解和認知不足。

在我與脊椎側彎奮鬥的過程中,我發現了CGS,並加入了此組織。在與他們交流的期間,我很感恩,因他們都一直支持和鼓勵著我,所以,我希望能夠在香港建立一個脊椎側彎組織,去讓我幫助同樣患上脊椎側彎的香港青年人和提升大家對脊椎側彎的了解和認知。

 

 

 

I’m Ruby from Hong Kong. Since I was diagnosed with scoliosis, I’ve tried many methods that claim to cure my curve but none of them have worked for me. Unfortunately, my curve kept on progressing until it reached 80 degrees. Finally, I thought of having a surgery. In 2017, I had spinal fusion and everything went well.

 

In the past years, I was so lonely and helpless to fight with scoliosis alone as I don’t have any friend who also gets scoliosis. People who diagnosed with scoliosis are quite shy, feel ashamed to share it, so it's normal that there is not any scoliosis support group in Hong Kong. I even got teased by my classmate in school due to their insufficient knowledge and awareness about scoliosis.

 

During my time of struggling with scoliosis, I joined CG and found that CG is so supportive so I want to develop a CG scoliosis group in HK to allow me to support other teenagers who also have scoliosis, as well as raise scoliosis awareness in HongKong.
