I'm a 19 year old male with an 85 degree curvature in the spine, condition called Scoliosis AmA!
I was born with scoliosis and the curvature has become so large that my doctor has told me its unfixable(Its fixable but the risks are so high that it is not worth chancing). I am 19 and 4'10", AmA!

EDIT1: This is my first Reddit post and my first AmA! I have never heard from so many other people with scoliosis! Throughout my 19 year life career ive only met 2 other people with scoliosis. My grandpa and some random kid at a park that was a spitting mirror image of me. Like I mean twins.
EDIT2: Its been 4 hours and Im still trying to answer everyones comments!
EDIT3: 6 hours in and ive commented back to about 90% of peoples comments!
EDIT4: 8 Hours in and comments are still coming in. Still trying to answer all of them. Ill be up for another 2 hours!
EDIT5: OK so its been a really long 10 hours! For the whole 10 hours of this post ive been sitting at my laptop, reading, commenting, answering EVERY SINGLE COMMENT. If I didn't reply to you, then I read what you had to say. I kept refreshing my unread messages making sure that the people with late comments got a response. Thank you everyone for sharing your stories and giving your advise. I did not expect this to get so big. When I get home I have a few things to do, thank you again for everyones comments and advise, I am off to bed, so If you are reading this update then I have gone to bed!
