People tell me I didn't worsen or cause my scoliosis. How is that?

I'd appreciate many answers.

Just so you know, I suffered from anxiety and psychosis in some part of my life at a school where I couldn't eat anymore. mouth was dry and all that. no eating disorder - just anxiety. So I went to 55 kg at like 16 or 17 years. But now I'm good.

Also I was sitting uneven on the desk with my legs on the table for several hours daily while using the pc.

Did any of that contribute to my scoliosis? Did I worsen it ANY BIT? Or did all that not make any difference at all..?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.

Sitting in abnormal positions for extended period of time over several years can affect spinal alignment.
I hope it answers your question. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
