Spine by RoxaneLys Spine by RoxaneLys

Watercolor, ink and charcoal pencils on Moleskine Book

Trying to express how to feels to live with a weak spine. Like having a rosebush going through your back... 
hurting with thorns and weak like roses you can easily cut.

I don't have a critical medical condition, but my spine has always been weak. I had to go through a lot of medical treatments, ending up with surgery.
I wish I would have been informed better on spine problems. I could have avoided a lot of pain. The problem is that when people (even doctors!) don't see visible injuries they assume that you have nothing... especially when it comes to the spine. And when you're not informed about spine problems, you can lose a lot of time, suffering in silence. Months after you end up with a critical problem that could have been easily solved if it had been treated sooner.
If you're in the same situation, please don't give up and be strong!

I have three blown disks and the soft tissue in my lower back is ruined. How I wish my back could yield blossoms this beautiful... then it might be worth the pain of the thorns.

I have the same problem: one herniated disc and one damaged right next to it. And the same problem with soft tissues. My lower back looks ugly and is ruined too.
You know I have located the blossoms at the top of the spine, the remaining healthy part for now. There are only thorns and old leaves on the damaged part. I kept the blossoms because I keep hope
